Pump track in Saginaw?

Postby newtobmx » January 27th, 2011, 3:32 pm

I work for an organization that is thinking about building a pump track in Saginaw- before we put resources into it we wanted to know if there is any interest in having one locally? And if so does anyone have any designs they would like to see incorporated? Your imput would be greatly appreciated

I think if one person were to ride it that would be a success. I'd imagine there would be some interest in that area among youth skate park kids but I doubt they come on here. I don't live in Saginaw but if I'd ride it if it were by my house. Here is some input in designs. I like the idea of a transfer.

Has anything happened in the planning/building of this? I would go ride a pump track if there was one in the area, as I'm sure quite a few people would. If there is any info happening with this I would like to hear more, would even be interested in helping build. Hopefully this will happen.

Hey all, we are building the track this weekend!

I'm flying in from Boulder, CO tomorrow to rock this thing. Here's the schedule:

Thursday: Mark the track and place dirt

Friday: Work with volunteers to shape and pack dirt

Saturday: Big work day. Work with volunteers to finish the build and ride the track in.

Sunday: Ride in the morning, then I have to head home.

This is the fourth track I've done this year. This thing will also be the best yet. Tons of fun and flow for all riders!

Please come help. Bring shovels, rakes, tampers or your favorite dirt tools.

Has anyone ridden this? Pics/video? I love to play around on pump tracks, but I've seen some pretty bad ones...
