Salty Street Fest Another Big Success for the SCC

Another Salty Street Fest come and gone, and they are getting better each year!

Thanks to all the volunteers and racers from the High School MTB Team who helped setup and run the BBQ, Bike Valet, and Bike Swap.

A big success with the Street Fest this year was signing up 30 new members, bringing our 2018 army to 232, just a few shy of the total for all of last year.

Also thanks to everyone that came down to the Bike Swap and either donated or picked up some bikes or gear. There were some vintage beauties, a couple of high enders, a few projects, and my personal fave the Palm Bay cruiser. The Bike Swap ended up raising about $1000 for the SCC!

We also sold a few t-shirts and some of our new maps, and had lots of young folks taking a rip on the SCC pump track.

Next up on the calendar is SCC Movie Night, May 25! Tickets for The Moment on sale at Skookum, and are likely to sell out so don’t wait! Along with the great movie showing, […]
