Second Saturdays Trailwork Party + Bike Share at Highbridge Bike Park

Saturday, August 8, 2020

10:00 a.m.3:00 p.m.

This event repeats on the 2nd Saturday of every month between 9/14/2019 and 9/10/2022.

Dig, then ride with us on NYCMTB's monthly welcome days at Highbridge Park in Manhattan!

Bring your friends and family for a day of fun in the woods and learn what it takes to build, maintain, and ride the most progressive urban bike park in America! There will be light trail maintenance tasks for all ages from 10:00 a.m. to noon. All participants, NYCMTB members, or anyone with logged volunteer hours, receive a free 20-minute clinic and a guided ride throughout the trails from 12:30 p.m to 3:00 p.m. Bikes and helmets provided!

Highbridge Park is the home of NYC's first Mountain Biking Course. The 3-mile course offers trails of varying difficulty from intermediate to expert and a free-ride trail that includes drops, steeps, and berms. The park also features a dirt jump park and pump track, making it a good place to develop different skills at all levels. The course has been featured in national media and is stewarded by volunteers just like you!

Make this day your introduction to the park, or to the sport of off-road cycling. Interested volunteers are encouraged to participate regardless of age, ability or gender. There is something for everyone at Highbridge - It's NYC's bike park!

Please bring water, sunscreen, bug repellant, and sturdy shoes or boots.
