Zen garden of awesome: pump track sweetness in Santa Cruz County

Backyard spotlight: the ih8bikes pump track

Having your own backyard pump track is a lot of fun. We didn’t get to ride ours as much as we would have liked this summer due to the distant location, but the sessions we did have were a blast. I built an new outer loop extension to the track that really opened up a […]

The Whistler Pump Tracks

One thing about the trail builders at Whistler; when they take on a project, it gets taken to the next level. Case in point: the pump track constructed for the Ultimate pump track challenge.

The Whistler Pump track looks sweet.

The Whistler pump track looks rad. These days pump track design had been going in two distinct directions: one way, race-course style, and more of a free-form dirt skate park style. Either way, done right both are wicked fun. Check this bad boy out: At the moment it sounds like I’m going to make it […]
