14179595_1472845846.6475_funddescriptionA world-class community-built bicycle park known as "The Boondocks Trails" is being shut down by the local township. Due to miscommunication and some misunderstanding, we are now in the position to have to get legal support. We want to continue negotiations to become a public park that everyone can enjoy. A place where riders sign up to enter the bike park and spectators can walk around the whole facility to watch.

14179595_1472864754.9578_funddescriptionThe Boondocks Trails located on Long Island, NY already has riders coming from around the world to visit and ride what the local bicycle community built together. The bike park has been there for 11 years now and has sections for every skill level so all riders have an area they can have fun riding. We have riders from the ages of 2 - 62+ all having a great time together.

14179595_1472871373.2529_funddescriptionThese hand-built trails are considered "works of art" and a place that inspires people throughout the world.

Here's a few links that show how amazing the Boondocks Trails are.

They're gone. We went there today and they've been bulldozed. It breaks my heart.

My son is 12 and just started dirt jumping. We go to Catty Woods and Posh. After finding out about the Boondocks we can't wait to get up there. This is an amazing trail system and would be a great loss to the community.

I learned how to dirt jump here when I was growing up in NYC. Watching them grow and improve has been incredible. Jim is a legend and a community steward. I hope to be able to come back from Colorado one day and ride these jumps again.
