Spring Group Rides

21 April 2016 No Comment


NYCMTB’s group rides are open to all cyclists with a working mountain bike, helmet and a good attitude. There will always be a ride leader but everyone is responsible for themselves when it comes to tubes, tools, hydration and nutrition.

We put safety and trail conditions first. This means all rides are subject to last minute changes. If the weather looks to interfere with our plans we will find a different trail or worst case, cancel the ride.  Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to get the latest updates.
