Attention all Australian Gold Coast residents and outdoor enthusiasts!
We have thrilling news to share with you.
Pizzey Park, Australia's first Olympic skate park, is about to become even more incredible with the addition of the Gold Coast's very first asphalt pump track.
But what exactly is a pump track?
A pump track is a beginner-friendly track that caters not only to bikes but also to scooters, skateboards, and inline skates. Unlike traditional BMX tracks with a start and finish line that require pedalling, a pump track consists of a loop with undulating rhythm sections. By skilfully "pumping" the rises and falls of the track, riders can maintain momentum without pedalling, resulting in an exhilarating and continuous ride.
The pump track at Pizzey Park will span an impressive 2000 square meters and feature various exciting elements. From rollable mounds to step-up/step-down jumps and tabletop jumps, riders of all skill levels will have a blast. Additional seating and shading will ensure that both riders and spectators can comfortably enjoy the track.
The benefits of this new pump track extend far beyond the thrill of riding. It is designed to be beginner-friendly, catering to a wide range of users and promoting inclusivity. Individuals of all ages and skill levels can engage in outdoor recreation, develop their skills, and enjoy the sense of community fostered by the track. The youth, often overlooked in open space designs, will have a dedicated place to connect, learn, and pursue their passion.
The pump track's presence at Pizzey Park will further elevate the already world-class skate park.
Together, they form a hub of excitement and outdoor fun, attracting individuals from all walks of life. Whether you're an experienced rider or a curious beginner, the pump track offers an inclusive and engaging environment for everyone.
