Free form layouts Most private pump tracks start with a loop style layout and build additional lines into them over time. As there are endless directions and lines, the downside to using this style of layout for a public park is the possibility of collisions. The Aptos Pump Track was a great example of a successful loop-style track.

Because they are designed for advanced or professional riders, they are often not beginner friendly and are not the best choice of layout for public parks.

It needed maintenance and the overly tight turns and uniform roller spacing lacked flow and made it uninspiring. Sharp corners are often overly challenging; although they can provide excitement for users, they require much more material ie, a tall banked wall when executed well. The little tyke tracks often feature scaled down rollers that end up essentially being obstacles as opposed to features.

These layouts generally have a defined start and end, and because the users are all traveling in the same direction, user conflicts and collisions are minimized.

The downside to this type of park strategy is that volunteers tend to focus on the track that is the most fun, so that the loop style track is neglected. This in turn, makes the beginners migrate to the better maintained track. Kiddie tracks generally serve to placate adults and parents that have never ridden a pump track.

They insure it. We just design it and ride it. The area is m by 30m so I might have to make the design a bit longer though I want to plan it on squared paper first to get the size and distance right between jumps easily rollable trail features.

The green bits on the corners indicate berms.
