Pump tracks are a worldwide success and increasingly becoming an amenity staple in towns and cities globally. They provide a playground for kids and adults alike, from beginner’s to professionals a pump track provides a community with a sustainable and fun packed activity for all ages and skill levels.

Why should London, Ontario have a pump track? 
London's got a huge and thriving cycling community that enjoys all aspects of bike riding, from mountain biking to road cycling. A pump track would be a huge asset to London's riding scene and the cyclists within it. As well as an asset for local people, it's a great reason for people to travel to the area. Pump Track's are ideal for all ages and for skills progression as well as year round, whatever the weather fun. London supports the Skatepark segment massively in London and is Nationally recognized for it. So the next step is to add a pumptrack for the riders that don't enjoy that style of riding in the London area. 

So what is a pump track?
A pump track is designed for all things on wheels. From mountain bikes to bmx’s and skateboards, a pump track is a playground for all wheels. By combining rolling jumps with turns they are accessible for all. Teaching the basic skills of carrying momentum, balance and speed by using your arms and legs to pump your bike/board/scooter around the track. As you get better the tracks are designed to provide more challenges for you with no changes to the construction. A feature that a 5-year-old can roll through can be used as a gap jump for a professional.  Its truly one of the best core workouts one can get.

Lets work together to make a generational impact everyone can enjoy.
