Like most events at 718 Cyclery, Dirt Jam was born out of some random ideas, and the desire to bring people together who enjoy off-road riding. The random idea was to put on a race/event that was more of a fun celebration than just a race. Location was Cunningham Park in Queens, NYC.
As we move towards introducing our Saturday Shop Rides , I want to pause and remember the genesis of our riding program...The Titans of Tuesday. The Titans of Tuesday were born in July 2014 in Utah. I had let Chris Kelly of Topanga Creek convince me that we as a shop needed more time outside the shop. At the time, this was my second trip to Utah for mountain-biking, and I returned to Brooklyn ready to go on some rides and spread the good word.
