New Meetup: Strong Beginner Ride @ Cunningham Park

Announcing a new Meetup for Brooklyn Mountain Biking!

What: Strong Beginner Ride @ Cunningham Park

When: Saturday, March 20,[masked]:00 AM

Where:
Cunningham Park
210th street and 67th ave
Fresh Meadows, NY 11364

Description

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 Strong Beginner Level Ride.

You should be able to keep up at a slightly increased pace, and we will be encountering some minor obstacles.

Expect to ride for about 2-3 hours with a bit of downtime/rests as the group finds necessary.

If there is interest some intermediate trails may be explored.

All members who will be attending this ride MUST wear a Helmet & Gloves are recommended.
*Please remember to bring plenty of Fluids and Snacks.
