our story

Laughing and cycling through grassy fields is where the idea of urbandirt was formed

We were simply having fun and thought – hey‽ – can’t we all have fun?

So, we found some excited people to help unlock a forgotten gate. We chuckled at its opening – in disbelief that no one had opened it yet. But, when we peeked through there were faint tire tracks. More people who love cycling are starting to find these off-road trails. We are interested in helping you find these forgotten gates. And, we want to create a kind and inclusive community that you can enjoy these moments with.

As of our soft launch day of June 21, 2020, we are looking for more curators to help us all find this natural splendor. Do you want to help?

At the moment we are looking for many things! Could you help us curate:

  • Routes
  • Whole new sections. So far we are thinking about: food, gear review, journal, photography, video, events
  • Organization direction

We’d love to connect and share knowledge. Please be in touch we are looking for diverse ideas and direction!

Can often be found biking in Lowell and on the Bruce Freeman trail with her neighbors, or exploring connections between small parcels of green spaces to make up epic day rides in the area.
