The new pump track opens on Saturday 7 December 2019

05 December 2019

Stromlo Forest Park has a new, purpose-built pump track that has been designed, reshaped, built and capped over almost two years and is now ready for mountain biking action.

The circuit features rollers and banked turns to allow for maximum ‘pumping’ – gaining momentum by moving up and down rather than pedalling.

The track will be open to riders of all ages and abilities from Saturday, 7 December 2019.

In preparation for the opening, the team from The Handlebar café brought together members of Canberra’s mountain biking community for a test ride, and to celebrate the success of local talents Sian and Kye A’Hern.

The pump track will be just one more action-packed facility for Canberrans visiting Stromlo Forest Park, which already boasts mountain bike trails, running tracks, equestrian trails and a range of other active facilities.

A new leisure centre, featuring a 50-metre pool, is also under construction and scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2020.
