Riding in a bike skills park or on a pump track is a fun and easy way to learn the technical skills needed for better mountain bike handling. These parks normally consist of a circuit course of rollers, banked turns (berms), and features designed to be ridden completely by a rider. The term “pumping,” by up and down body movements, generates momentum instead of pedaling or pushing. It was originally designed for the mountain bike and BMX scene, and now, due to concrete constructions, is also used by skateboarders, roller skaters, and other similar activities. Pump tracks are relatively simple to use and cater to various rider skill levels. Here in Minnesota, you will find many options as listed below.
