The All-Weather Pump Track

Pump tracks are a great way for riders to increase their skills in a low-risk environment. In most cases, however, they require regular maintenance to keep them shaped correctly and at the proper moisture level.

When faced with the desire to create a pump track at Reimers Ranch in Travis County, Texas, the Austin Ridge Riders proposed a wooden structure to reduce the maintenance load. Trail Solutions, in partnership with fineGRAIN, designed a low-impact wooden pump track that integrates into the oak woodland landscape. Lead by Trail Specialist Chris Leman, the project is rapidly advancing.

What did you use for the dimensional lumber? It looks like maybe a 2x12 and 2x6??

Don, we used PT 2x material in various configurations. We make a mini glu-lam sandwich with the exterior-grade ply to get the right height and then shape it with the saw.
