    Yup, that's the place. I was in heaven, kids were all, "can we go now please?" There was an older guy there on a 20 inch, word is he was a high school teacher as well, he gave me hope. I'd never try a 20 inch, last time I rode my kid's it was all I could do to keep it under me.

    Our city just allowed the local cycling folks to cut some single track through an unused park on the edge of town. A nice not too technical 1 mile loop, with so decent climbing. Not much else going on there, and the single track doesn't bother any of it. Would be the perfect place for a pump track...

    There is a dirt jump line a short roll from my house, but I'm only interested in watching. If there was a pump track, however, I'd be right out there looking silly, and a pump track bike would follow because this is the way.

    This is the way.

    Municipal paved pumptracks start at $175k with the company I work for. We try not to do dirt municipal pumptracks any more because itís almost impossible to insure that they will be properly maintained.

    A dirt pumptrack track kinda just shrinks over time unless people love on it with shovels and picks pretty regularly, or a signed plan for maintenance is in place.

    Interesting. Is paved pump track design & install custom every time, or does a firm like yours have pre-designed options for different plot dimensions? I assume there is a minimum footprint for a workable design, and Iíve been surprised by how small some pump tracks can be.
