PUMP TRACK

INITIATIVES

Proposed Pump Track and Skills Zone in Birchwood Park

We need your help!!  The WMBC and Birchwood Neighborhood Association are fundraising to build a Pump Track and skills area in Birchwood Park.  The estimated construction cost is $50,000.
 

What are Pump Tracks?

  • Manmade closed circuits with rollers in between and berms at each end.

  • Designed to be ridden without pedaling.

  • A full-body workout, riders use their body to pump—or push down into the dip after an elevation and pull up before the crest of a mound—throughout the continuous loop.

 

Why Birchwood Park?

  • Ideal pump track location.

  • Flat topography with plenty of light.

  • Easily accessed by small children and parents – Bay to Baker Trail.

  • Safe for kids and buffered by open space.

  • The field location is used sparingly by park goers.

  • Easy Parking and access from Squalicum Creek Park.

What are the Benefits?

  • Pump tracks are fun for riders of all ages and abilities.

  • Birchwood Park is easily accessible from various neighborhoods (King Mountain, Lettered Streets, Birchwood, Columbia, Cornwall).

  • Families already ride to Squalicum park using the Bay to Baker Trail, making the use consistent with the park today.

  • 2 popular mountain bike clubs at Alderwood and Birchwood Elementaries.

Proposed Pump Track and Skills Zone in Everson

Help us build the  Everson Bike Park!

 

Thanks to the work of a local team in Everson and the support of the City Public Works and Parks Department, we will be working towards a build-out of a bike park and pump track at Riverside Park in Everson! The location for the new pump track is a perfect spot with lots of activities already happening and a future upgraded playground to be constructed next to the bike park.

 

To build this bike park, we'll need the support of our community! The estimated total cost of construction is $50,000. If you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation to the Everson pump track, please do here.
