The Last People present the BFF New York Grands

June 26 4:30pm

A BMX race, New York City style.
Get back to the roots of BMX with a race through the streets of the city, battling your friends to the finish. Bump elbows for the holeshot, from the starting point along the East River at 23rd Street. Navigate your way to two undisclosed checkpoints where you will have to roast an obstacle of some kind. Then sprint your way to the finish line at the Bicycle Film Festival street party. Then, catch your breath, sit back and enjoy the BMX screenings.

Top 10 finishers get free entry to the screenings, and will be awarded some awesome prizes from Quintin, FBM, Sunday, Terrible One, Dig, Anthem, Act Like You Know, Franchise, Post, and some of BFF’s sponsors including a pizza from Two Boots. Awards will be announced inside the theater (Anthology Film Archives) at 6:00 pm. Be ready to shred!
