A movie screening under the stars tops off a great day of riding your local trails -with our freinds from Intense Cycles!!
NYCMTB has teamed up with Sids Bikes NYC to bring you an afternoon of riding fresh treads at Highbridge Bike Park, on bikes provided by Intense Cycles!*
The staff at Highbridge Bike Park have been busy over the last four years dialing in some new goods for you to ride! The jump park has been totally redesigned. The back forty have been buffed and tuned and the flow has never been better! Riders can challenge their stamina on the big loop, get their flow out on the newly redesigned wonderwall trail, or test their mettle on the old favorite, Rough Ryder -All on Intense's newest lineup of professional grade bikes!
Riders can also take a sneek peek at the newest additions on the Hellfighter Freeride trail, updated for 2013 with two new senders and a transfer jump in progress. Will you be the first to hit it??
Trail demos begin at 1:00 p.m. Bern Helmets is coming along for the ride, providing protection for your noggin when the riding gets rough. Bern is also donating some sweet raffle prizes and tons of giveaways all day! Meet the NYCMTB staff as we grill you some tasty snacks to compliment your ride while DJsheila Morales spins up some hot tracks to keep the vibe alive.
Bring your purse, because Sids Bikes NYC has stepped up to offer over $1k in prizes in NYCMTB's signature MEGA raffle. All proceeds will directly benefit improvements to the Highbridge Bike Park.

When & Where
The New York City Mountain Bike Association builds and maintains trails in the five boroughs of New York City, advocates locally and regionally for the sport of mountain biking, and fosters a community of mountain bikers in NYC. NYCMTB is a nonprofit, and a member of IMBA and USA Cycling.
In addition to building and maintaining trails, we are committed to programming events and races for youth and adults in the five boroughs of NYC, and our goal is to get more people out riding mountain bikes on trails in and out of the city. Revenue from our races funds our trailbuilding and maintenance work, which in turn creates better trails to race and ride on- a virtuous circle. Our off-trail social events are designed to bring riders together and foster a sense of community, which in turn results in greater volunteer participation. Our race team is designed both to keep racing fun for the racers of NYC, and to support our youth development team- we’re not just racing for our personal results, we’re racing to mentor the next generation of young riders and racers, and to grow the base of the sport in underserved communities in New York City while promoting fitness and a love of the outdoors.
