On Sunday the 29th we’re celebrating ten years of volunteerism at Highbridge Park the only way we can think of; by riding the trails, sending it over the jumps and railing the pumptrack berms. It will be a day of riding and racing for all ages and skill levels.

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