San Diego Mountain Biking Association Announces Double Header Weekend of  Riding, Camping & Fun at Two Separate Events in October 

San Diego, CA, May 27, 2021 – World-class riding, top-notch entertainment, camping and  philanthropic fun – get ready because this October will offer the single greatest weekend in  San Diego mountain biking history with two incredible opportunities to have a blast and raise  money for the San Diego Mountain Biking Association (SDMBA). With a mix of music, food,  camping and full-on bike racing, Monuments of Cycling is bringing its BLAZING SADDLES par ty to Escondido at Daley Ranch, Friday through Sunday, October 15 - 17. And that same  weekend, The SDMBA 3rd Annual Mount Laguna Trail Fest presented by ZOIC Clothing will be  filled with two-wheeled exploration and camping in the beautiful trees of the Cleveland National  Forest. 

BLAZING SADDLES, a unique cycling, music and food festival set at Daley Ranch will bring  together an eclectic mix of food, drink, music and cycling unlike anything Southern California  has ever seen. It will be a festival to showcase the region’s thriving cycling, culinary, beer and  music scenes and will be presented with an appreciation for bringing the world together again  in a beautiful, idyllic and rustic oasis. In addition to a gravel/road ride, plus 6-, 12- and 24- hour  racing for both mountain bikers and gravel riders (for individuals and teams), BLAZING SAD DLES will incorporate camping options with a seamless, interactive experience for all guests  and be the first festival of its kind.  

Registration is now open at for the individual, team and cor porate challenge events, as well as the campsites. Initial entry fees range from $100 to $200,  with discounts for junior riders.  

A portion of the funds generated from BLAZING SADDLES will directly support SDMBA’s ef forts with the City of Escondido and other local partners on the Master Trails Plan which will  improve and expand trail access at Daley Ranch. Find out more about the Daley Ranch  Project here:  

Concurrently, the SDMBA 3rd Annual Mount Laguna Trail Fest presented by ZOIC Clothing will  be a weekend of riding and camping in the beautiful trees of the Cleveland National Forest.  Join SDMBA for a lively yet intimate gathering with trail loving friends riding mountain bikes,  sitting by the fire, sleeping in tents, and sharing good times. Ride the beautiful rolling meadows  and woods with a guided group or explore on your own with your family and friends. Fun for all  ages is slated to include a Poker Ride, bike demos, shuttles, skills clinics, kid’s clinics and  rides. We will have plenty of cold beverages from Sierra Nevada and other regional treats...  mmmm, pie! Visit Visit for more infor mation.
