    The Backyard Pump Track

    Do you have one in your yard? Do you have one in your neighborhood or town?

    I am working on an article and want to see your photos and videos of these magical creations.

    There's too many swimming pools, tennis courts and baseball fields in our neighborhoods. We need more pump track.

    Ok, this is just adding to the fuel... We've been talking about building a pump track for a while, but need to figure out the track layout details. Any good tips on track dimensions, layouts, berm heights/turn radius, and other stuff like that? The photos and videos are great, but I think I need more details.

    Part two is coming with layouts and formula examples for tracks. But for now, use the bible written by Lee McCormack

    i havent read the bible you posted yet, But I will add, I have been riding raysmtb since day one...the pump track there has changed almost every year...when the distances are wrong, or the humps are the wrong size, it makes a great track suck!....I really like that folks are looking into this aspect....it really does make a big differance.
    Thanks for the backyard pics...so freeeekin' cool.

    Just a few of the Phoenix area pump tracks...

    From a recent event at Les' AJ pump track/jump track to raise funds for our local Harmony DH champs:







    Other backyard PTs:





    PT behind Rage bike shop:



    PT at McDowell, a Maricopa county park:







    And pics from last year's demonstration at South Mountain park by GroAZ to show the park how much they need a pump track & skills area. My pics from this year's demo not up yet!

    Thanks. Almost immediately after posting I bought Pump Track Nation. Haven't had a chance to read through it yet, as it showed up in my inbox late last night.
