I offer you a MTB course in the middle of NYC! Get a chance to try something new while discovering the great Cunningham Park in NYC! The course is designed to: (1) show you how easy and fun mountain biking can be with an appropriate introduction, (2) to prove that New York City has plenty to offer ( a local's view!) During the 3hrs of this introductory course we will cover all the key basics of mountain biking that every beginner should learn: - Intro 30′ Introductory discussion. Different types of mountain bikes, gear walkthrough and warm up. - Riding 120′ In this 2-hour session, you will learn about basic skills every rider should learn: breaking safely, riding over small obstacles, riding down slopes, changing gears, lifting the front wheel, body position. This is a “hands-on or rather wheels on the session”, learning while riding the tracks. The pace of activity will be adjusted to the individual. - Wind down 30′ Cooldown session and new experience discussion.
I am a founder of two outdoor sports agencies, one in Slovenia and another one in NYC (since I moved here 4 years ago). Since 2006, organize sports travel trips for active individuals and share my passions for outdoors with others. I offer an insider's view of an area and personal approach, which I think is the key to a good travel experience.

Cunningham Park is a quick drive from the city and a perfect playground to introduce mountain biking. Cunningham’s trail run the gamut-tight and twisty, technical singletrack, technical rock features, and log-overs galore, relatively smooth and wide beginner trails (wide enough to pull a baby trailer behind your bike) to fast and fun intermediate trails. Cunningham provides a great workout with constant speed-ups and slow-downs!
We suggest you wear a comfortable bike or athletic clothing, sports shoes, jacket, and sunglasses. If you can, bring a bottle of water with you:)
