Pump Tracks in Perth

Firstly, just what IS a pump track?! A pump track is a looped bike track jam-packed with “rollers and berms”, otherwise known as bumps and banked turns. The track is designed to maximize the rider’s momentum by pumping (moving their body) so that they should be able to ride it with very minimal pedalling. There are loads of pump tracks in Perth – they seem to be popping up everywhere.

There are many big gravel pump tracks around the metro area. Easier, soft fall pump tracks are perfect for little kids while they are building their confidence. Either way, they are perfect for riders of BMX bikes and mountain bikes building skills, before heading to a mountain bike trail through the bush! See our big guide to pump tracks in Perth here…
