Announcing a new Meetup for Brooklyn Mountain Biking!
What: Beginner/Intermediate Meetup @ Cunningham Park
When: August 2, 2009 10:30 AM
210th street and 67th ave
Fresh Meadows, NY 11364Description
Cunningham Park is a fantastic urban trail system with 6.5 miles of trails for everyone from beginner XCers to dirt jumpers. There's no real elevation change to speak of, but plenty of tight and twisty trails, log rides, small rock features, two pump tracks, a big dirt jump line, and more on the way from our friends at CLIMB. You can safely take non-mtb'er family there for a gentle ride on non-challenging wider dirt paths, or you can ratchet it up and hammer on the tech trails with the 'core folks. It's a stellar trail system that you wouldn't expect within the borders of NYC.
This Ride is a Beginner/Intermediate Level Ride
All members who will be attending this ride MUST
wear a Helmet & Gloves are recommended I'd like to split this group in two Levels if two People (1 Front- 1 Back) would like to Lead the Intermediate Riders, Any takers?
