NYCMTB Bike jam flyer 2018 with Outdoorfest

The Highbridge Ten year Anniversary Jam is a day of all-free, all-ages racing and competition at Highbidge Bike Park.  The event takes riders over trails and terrain throughout the park, showcasing ten years of  hard work from our volunteers who annually contribute more than 2000 hours towards their maintenance and upkeep.  NYCMTB wishes to thank these hard working, committed volunteers the only way we know how; by riding the trails, sending it over the jumps and railing the pump track.

 

It will be a day of fun riding and racing for all ages and skill levels begining with a free bike-share and guided rides, followed by X-country racing out on the back forty. The Sugar Cayne pumptrack challenge and the legendary Highbridge dirt jump jam are the order of the day in the terrain park, starting at 2pm”

Thanks to all volunteers, sponsors and New York Parks Department for making this event possible!
