This spring saw Appalachian Dirt working on phase 1 of a local back yard bike park. A private bike park is a good option for the yards and properties of outdoor recreators, especially those with kids. After all, why put in a pool when you can build a pumptrack?
Phase 1 of this particular project saw the construction of a main track, consisting of 200+ feet of a timber track/pump track hybrid. A base foundation was leveled out and hard-scaped for ease of maintenance before installing wooden constructed rollers and berm-like corner structures. Progressive balance lines were also installed.
The future of this back yard bike park will see a boulder causeway transition line in the track, an elevated perimeter trail, progressive drops, and log-over area.
