I just finished editing 2 new video clips from the newly designed Cunningham Pump Track in Cunningham Park, Fresh Meadows, Queens N.Y.! The clip up top is the first one I did since Jim Martinez and his crew finished the huge inverted berm (Berm #4). I got some dope shots with the steadicam GoPro and was able to follow the riders all the way around the track!
The video below was from a week before berm 4 was finished. We had an awesome session with the little ones doing some fun trains and tons of laps. I put my camera on a tripod and got clips of us riding of each straight.
The new Cunningham pump track is so much fun to ride now, big shout out to Jim Martinez and the whole crew for making this happen!

Fun Times At Highbridge and Brooklyn Pump Track
We recently had a fun session at 2 New York City bike parks, Highbridge in Washington Heights and Velosolutions Brooklyn Pump Track in Williamsburg Brooklyn. I linked up with my Connecticut BMX buddies Scott, Felix and his little one at Highbridge for some laps, then we headed off to Brooklyn where we wound up spending the rest of the day. The dirt jump line was the only section open for bikes since there was a skate jam on the paved pump track but we had a fun session. Joan and Dylan did some laps with us and later that night John Hicks rolled through with his crew for a quick session. It was too dark by them for me to get any good action photos so I took a few Look Away’s lol! Check out the gallery below!
Cunningham Pump Track Flicks (200+Photos)
The weather this past Sunday was too amazing to pass up for a session at Cunningham Pump Track. So I went out there to link up with Dboy, Barry and Al to do some laps.
A bunch of riders came out to have fun at the trails and it wound up being an awesome day of crazy laps around the track. Track designer Jim Martinez was there getting busy doing laps, he also took a few flicks of me gaping the two rollers before the 2nd berm.
I wasn’t even planning to take photos, I was just gonna ride but I couldn’t resist the photographer in me lol!! Enjoy the photos below!
