The purpose built cycle track features small dirt rollers and berms, and has been designed to help riders gain speed without pedalling and improve confidence on a bike. Open to all ages and skill levels, from beginners to professionals, both children and adults can test their biking skills all year round at the park. Best of all, the pump track is free to use for River Dart Country Park campers and day visitors all year round.
Riders are highly recommended to wear appropriate clothing and bring their own bike and protective headgear, as well as gloves and pads. The track will be open during good weather all year round, and will only be closed when repairs are needed due to rain or poor conditions.
Mark Simpson, Owner of River Dart Country Park said: “The pump track is a fantastic addition to the park, and is perfect for everyone – from biking beginners, to BMX pros looking for a new challenge. It has been designed in collaboration with some of the UK’s young riders, and provides for a fun and adventurous day out in one of region’s best locations.”
“We are proud to be associated with Decoy BMX club, and be included as one of their main sponsors. The club does a lot for the local community, and helps people, young and old, to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors!”
A parent of a biker said: "This part of the South west was in need of a good pump track, and with all the other facilities here, we could make a day of it, or even a weekend. It is a fun track in a beautiful location and as a family, we are looking forward to spending some time here riding and relaxing with friends.”
Alfie aged 8 said: "It's amazing! I like the way you can transfer from one track to another."
Another parent said: "Great track in a truly beautiful location, great job River Dart Country Park!"
