To utilise the space more, rather than build one trail, perhaps build a few lines that criss cross and meet up making a sort of infinite loop with loads of line options ? each time a trail crosses another make that section a table with 4 sides (or two sets of doubles) make the berms large so you can really carry speed if space is tight then you can pump out of them to maintain speed to get back up any incline that there might be in the area ?

so many options ! so much fun to be had !!

How has this worked out? Any pics? and does anyone know where i can get plans for a pump track? not necessarily the whole thing, mainly the tech specs of roller heights/spacings and berm lengths/radius.

Then just tweak size and towards the bottom with perhaps some northshore here and there instead of a berm have maybe a wood wall.


A berm is rideable all year, a wooden wall wont be much use in the winter or wet conditions, the moisture will remain in the wood all day in cold temperatures and the wood wall will be unrideable in these conditions.

good luck :high5:
