The Deep Creek Lake Lions Club is seeking comments and support for Garrett County’s first pump track planned for the Club’s community park in McHenry, MD. A pump track is a looped sequence of rollers and banked turns for bicycle riders designed to be ridden completely by riders “pumping” – generating momentum by up and down body movements –  instead of pedaling or pushing.

Here’s an interesting article about how to pump your bike according to physics. Did ya know?!

According to Club spokesperson Chris Nichols, “Pump tracks are accessible for bikers of all skill and age levels and provide a place to build skills and muscle memory that riders can take to more advanced trails. They become focal points for future recreational development and for community socialization.” Read more details here.
