Pump tracks are the latest trend in play park you might see pop up in many public spaces, and for good reason. A pump track is a loop of rollers and berms that allow bike riders to maintain momentum without having to keep pedalling. They help kids develop their bike handling skills and build confidence and, above all, it’s fun! We’ve created a list of a few local tracks to check out.
