  • This location is shown only to members


If you have ever done trail maintenance work you know how amazing it is to ride on those trails you helped build. If you have never tried it, we encourage you to join us!

We will be digging, schlepping, chopping, and more digging! You'll never get a better total body workout! After the work is done, we will go for a ride.

Those who have ridden Stewart know how awesome it is. There is a lot of time and work put in by volunteers to build and maintain the trails we then enjoy for free. Please join us in giving back to the trails for all the fun they bring to us!

Schedule:
9:00am- Meeting in the Weed Rd. Parking Lot
9:30am- Trail maintenance (Lunch will be provided!)
2:00pm- Group Ride

Materials:
Tools will be provided but if you have yours please bring them. Please also consider bringing: work and/or rubber boots, weather appropriate clothing, water, snacks, and bug spray.

This trail maintenance day is organized by The Stewards of Stewart (S.O.S.) working in partnership with the New York's Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to improve Stewart for all mountain bikers!

Please if you are joining us email David Bird ([masked]) your name and address so that you will be covered under the New York's Workers Compensation insurance.

    Had a great time. Awesome group of people. We got a lot done; we built a bypass for a section that very often gets under water, but not anymore!!...And had a great ride after.

    I sure could use a ride from 110 and 5th ave. Also, if this is more of an advanced ride, give me the heads up. I am still a beginner/intermed rider. Thank you!

      That's probably fine. Stewart is pretty flat with a lot of flow. Not a lot of rock gardens or need for long travel.

    The SSF Bike Tour was so much fun, I can't wait to get back there. I'm driving from Brooklyn and will have room for one more person/bike.
