    Good job! Reminder; Manhattan's First Legal Mtb Trails And Jumps Open Sat 19th

    After years of lobbying and meetings, and a year and a half of actual trail design and construction, the Grand Opening of the Highbridge Park mountain bike trails is nearly here. On May 19th, join us for the official grand opening of New York City's first legal mountain bike trails.

    The festival village opens at 10 am, and NYC Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe will cut the ribbon opening the trails at 11 am. Watch pro riders session the dirt jump park while the television cameras roll. Join in group rides for riders of all abilities. Ride demo bikes from various bike brands. Check out new products from a variety of local bike shops. Enjoy complementary bike service from the master mechanics of Sid's Bikes. Bring the kids to participate in fun events for young people. Sharpen your riding acumen with skills clinics. Buy a raffle ticket to support NYCMTB's trailbuilding in NYC, and get a chance to win great prizes. Enter the amateur jump jam, and compete for the best trick to win a new bike!

    All this and more happens May 19 at the Highbridge Park dirt jumps, at the top of Fort George Hill in the Washington Heights/Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan. The closest subway is the 1 train to 191st Street. Plentiful parking is available along Fort George Hill, and along Amsterdam Ave. Follow this link to a google map with the location:

    Awesome good time

    It was an awesome good time. Lots of people who really support biking in NYC and its boro's gave lots of credit to all the people and organizations that allowed this to happen.

    The dirt jumps were great! I borrowed a Pro's dj bike (thanks Lucky of Racer's Edge) for the hour loner. The "Transition" bike is flying cool. The jumps were grand on that thing. PA pro rider Jim gave me a few pointers too, WoW what a difference. This park is really going to get more kids outside and hopefully having a whole lot of fun.
