At 718, we've organized a few races. Somewhere between a sanctioned event and an alley-cat, you'll find our events. These events also serve as a great introduction for new riders to the sport.
City Slicker 2 Race/Event
718 Cyclery is proud to announce the City Slicker 2 Race/Evert at Cunningham Park, in Queens NYC on November 19th, 2016 (meet at trail-head on 210th Street and 67th Ave). Building on the great time that the 2015 City Slicker was, we hope to add some great events and sponsors to the mix. All proceeds to benefit CLIMB (Concerned Long Island Mountainbikers)
city slicker History
The City Slicker Race was dreamed up on a mountain camping trip in Vermont as a way to promote mountainbiking in NYC. We realized that there was a huge audience that could be shown how easy and accessible mountainbiking was for NYC residents. Our Inaugural City Slicker Race (2015) drew over 75 racers, and as a great success.
- We work very hard to keep registration costs low in order to make this event more accessible. We are also very fortunate to have great sponsors who feel the same way.
