Bike trails and jumps in NYC are not built or maintained by the city or by the Parks Dept. It is up to riders to keep them mint and enjoyable. If the trails are eroded and rutted, if the lips are crumbling and the berms sandy, it is our fault. You owe it to yourself and the bike community to pitch in and do your share. Please don't undertake this task alone; you will be much more effective working alongside the rest of us. Here are some ways to get involved.

Manhattan - Highbridge Park
Saturdays From 10am till dusk: This weekly session operates year-round, and is a great way to meet other trailworkers, learn building techniques and help build new features at highbridge.
Check our Facebook page "Highbridge Mountain Bike Park" for weekly updates; http://www.facebook.com/pages/Highbridge-Mountain-Bike-Park/211578442226551
Bring a bike, water and meet at the dirtjumps on Amsterdam:

-Ad-hoc workdays happen here and there when the weather is nice, the conditions are ripe for work... and head trailbuilders have free time. Watch this forum for "Dig Day" announcements, usually posted a day or two before, and subscribe to our Facebook page, "Highbridge Mountain Bike Park"
