718 is happy to announce our Shop Ride programs. These are mountain-bike and fat-bike rides, and our goal is to show experienced riders a great time, while welcoming newcomers into the sport.

Unlike other shop rides, these rides are less about aggression, gear and power output, and more about spending time with old and new friends in the woods. 

718 maintains a demo fleet to allow for those new to the sport to try it out. We offer mountain-bikes and fat-bikes from Salsa, Surly, Kona, Yeti, Niner, Santa Cruz, Ibus and Focus. 

718 provides directions and a group leader to make you way to these great local mountain-biking sites in Westchester County, Northern NJ and Long Island.

We highly recommend using a true mountain bike for these rides. It has been our experience that even cyclocross bikes have a hard time.  Also, we want to stress that every place we go has appropriate terrain for newcomers, so please do not feel intimidated.

Ride Schedule

Our next shop ride will be September 17th at Stillwell Woods (Long Island).  

Trail Map

We will plan to catch the 8:22am train to Syosset, leaving from the Atlantic Terminal. Riders are responsible for buying their own train tickets as well as an LIRR Train Pass. LIRR Schedule
