Announcing a new Meetup for Brooklyn Mountain Biking!
What: Beginner @ Cunningham 9/26
When: September 26,[masked]: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 Level Ride.
We will be going over the beginner trails, as well as a ride along the Vanderbilt Motor Parkway through the park. The road is about 3 miles long from start to finish and includes a few hills and descents.Vanderbilt Motor Parkway
