NYCMTB Board Member Al Cayne led an hour-long class on pumptrack and BMX fundamentals, and each of the twenty participants got a chance to test out their new skills on the newly built pumptracks on demo BMX bikes provided by event sponsors,Sugar Cayne Bike Fest, and Brooklyn Bike Park.

Following the demonstration, Chapter president, and PMBIA Certified instructor Christopher Trombley and GWHSMTB program director Ben Sadoff, led guided mountain bike rides around the speedway loop on bikes provided by the H.S. MTB Program.

All but a few riders were new to off-road cycling, and so the diversity of skills they learned that day earned them quite a few smiles, and us -a few new memberships!

Huge thanks to Tony, Mark, and all of the emergency crews from NYRP that disassembled the tangle of five trees that fell over the restoration site and the speedway loop -just four days before the event. We are truly grateful for your support!
