Have you ever biked on a pump track? Try one out this Saturday! - April 7, 2011

Portland Parks & Recreation is partnering with the NW Trail Alliance to bring Portland's very first "pump track" to East Portland. The small bike skill spot, proposed for Ventura Park, is a great way to build bike handling skills and get outside.

 

This Saturday morning, Parks will host a Bike Track Demonstration in Ventura Park, at 145 SE 117th, from 9:00 - 11:00.

 

Bring your own bike and helmet, and try out the track!

 

We hope to move forward with design of the proposed pump track soon.

 

Pump tracks are fun, family-friendly, and cost-effective, a plus in this tough economy.

 

The NW Trail Alliance is one of our most valuable community partners in the effort to bring more off-road cycling opportunities to the Portland area.

 

We're proud to partner with them to bring this exciting new development to East Portland!
