Thirty Years of BMX in the BX. The winter is finally ending and we are looking forward to beginning to celebrate our 30th anniversary, here at NYC's longest running ramp park; Mullaly Bikepark. Mark your calendar for some great events all summer long, with jams, get togethers, contests, and more.
July 15th will be our 30th anniversary event, celebrating the legacy of the park, which was founded by Victor Ortiz and The Rad Dogs crew in 1988. We will be focusing on the storied history of the park, and the inviting generations of riders to come out to the park.
2018 will also mark the second year of our Mullaly Classic BMX Contest, which is free enter for riders
STARTING 2017 RIGHT! Hope the winter has been good for everyone, we are excited for the new year and the warm weather a head and more changes coming to NYC's original ramp park. This year is off to a strong start with our work being recognized by City Parks Foundation, and receiving A Golden Trowel for the Community Parks Initiative award.
We have also been lucky enough to receive a batch of 35 new helmets free of charge courtesy of BELL HELMETS to make sure all of our riders are safe this season. Also look for us on PIX 11 news soon for a feature on the work we have been doing to expand BMX in The Bronx and beyond.
A new year means a whole line up of new events, ramps, friends, and good times will be coming your way from the Mullaly Bikepark Crew. Last year was a great time, with a number of events, new ramps additions, repairs to old favorites, visitors from all over the globe, a NY Times feature, and a fun end of year event that brought out some of the most talented riders on the East Coast.
We are going to be starting off 2017 in style at the Tender Trap. This year we will be hosting a benefit photography show on Saturday January 14th with a number of images from Elias Williams, Jesse Carlucci, Oba Stanley, Joan Simon, Edward O'Connor, Albert Hunt, and Samm Wilson. Party starts at 6pm, with free Genesse Beer from 7-8pm courtesy of Tender Trap, followed by a dance party from 10pm til close.
As always all proceeds will be going to improving the park and creating more fun for the warm months. So come out and celebrate a new year of BMX based good times at TENDER TRAP - 66 Greenpoint Avenue in Brooklyn, NY.
