    Cool-blue Rhythm pump track?

    Does anybody have any advice on building a pump track in my back yard? Is it a bad idea given I live in PDX(it rains sometimes)? I've got a pretty big yard. Nothing crazy, I just want to make the space more useful to me.

    If you're worried about the soil getting too wet in the rainy season you could always cover the track with plastic tarps (like a baseball field) so you can ride on the drier winter days.

    I saw an article in mountain bike action several months ago about building your own pump track, you might find it archived online or a library.....I can't wait to build my own pump track some time, hope you can get it done!

    There are some good plans and tips in the Mastering Mountain Bike Skills book by Bryan Lopes and Lee McCormick.

    Overall, a great read. Every rider should have a copy.

    I had thought of that.
