KINK BMX is proud to announce official plans for an End of Summer Block Party right here in Rochester, NY. The event will be held September 2, 2017 just across the street from Kink BMX headquarters located on Greenleaf Street just off of Atlantic Ave. The Kink BMX Block Party aims to bring not only the vast BMX community of Rochester and Upstate NY together, but also the general public of this amazing city we call home, to hang out, party, and have fun. Some of you are probably wondering who and what Kink BMX is… Well for almost 25 years, Kink BMX has been a thriving BMX bike company right here in Rochester’s back yard. Kink currently sells BMX bikes and parts all across the globe, including to several bike shops right here in Rochester. Additionally, the founder and owner, Zack Phillps, was awarded the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Entrepreneur of the Year honors back in 2002. We feel that this is important information for everyone to know considering Zack started Kink by selling sprockets and axles out of his backpack. His hard work is exactly why he has been able to maintain an grow this small business into a worldwide success. We believe this hard work is a direct reflection of the blue collar mentality Rochester, NY has offered to many of us and that is, in part, why we want to give back to the community and put on this event to celebrate not only Kink’s heritage, but Rochester’s as well.
So to return the favor to our fellow Rochesterians, we don’t just want the Kink BMX Block Party to be an event, but an experience. This block party will include a custom skate park setup put together by our own Pro BMX riders and employees. Plus we will have Let Be Friends all day to keep the day flowing. This will be a free and open ride event for all to participate in and show Rochester what BMX is about, and for others to spectate and enjoy. There will also be a best trick contest later in the day to really showcase the talented BMX riders that are right here in Rochester.
