There’s a New Bike Park to Ride in Brooklyn

While local developer group, Two Trees Management begins to plan construction on the lot across from the now defunct Domino Sugar factory on Kent avenue in Williamsburg, Ride Brooklyn snatched it up for a year-long lease. After working on the site for weeks, the Ride Brooklyn staff, along with volunteers have finally opened the gates to the first ever Brooklyn Bike Park.

This football field sized pump track offers various lines to rip on, depending on the rider’s skill level. When I was in New York a few weeks back, I stopped by to check it out and shoot some photos of this dirt oasis.

Check out more narrated photos in the Gallery!

      Can’t really a secret, its a public park, the Atlantic wrote about it as well. I really would like to ride this.

        It’s all fun and games until you’re getting chased around BK by a bunch of Ringwraiths on murdered out fixies.
