OutdoorFest is a 10 day outdoor adventure festival that brings the outdoors to New York City through hiking, biking, kayaking, sailing, climbing, slacklining and much more. Several MTB groups put on events in city parks to encourage New York residents to see what trail riding is all about. NYCMTB hosted a day of free clinics and tours of Highbridge Park.

We had people of all ages getting on bikes to challenge themselves.

Braking, steering, shifting and so much more- for an experienced rider it’s all second nature but it takes a lot of practice to get there. Throughout this scorching Saturday we had over a dozen people learning or improving their bike handling skills, both on pavement and trails.

Outdoorfest won’t be back until next year but there are some other great opportunities to get on a mountain bike, like our monthly event “Second Saturdays at Highbridge”. More info here.
