Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day

On October 1, 2016, Trips for Kids will host a free event, Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day, in Cunningham Park. Family members of all ages and riding skill levels are encouraged to come out and have fun.

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day will give both newcomers and seasoned riders a chance to experience the sport of mountain biking in a fun and encouraging environment, at no cost. There will be several guided rides, a kid’s obstacle course, a portable pump track provided by CLIF bar, and lessons in healthy living and the environment.

The event takes place in Cunningham Park, home of the largest biking trail in New York City, from 10am to 2pm. The location in the park is on the corner of 210th Street and 73rd Ave in Queens.

Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day was founded by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) with events held internationally every year. This year’s event hosted by Trips for Kids will strive to give New Yorkers a chance to enjoy the great outdoors.

Trips for Kids Metro NY is a nonprofit organization that provides mountain bike outings and environmental education for kids who would not otherwise have these opportunities. TFK Metro New York teaches lessons in personal responsibility, achievement and environmental awareness through the simple act of having fun, enabling them to realize their full potential.
