Flexi®-Pave was chosen to replace the traditional grass or turf, as Flexi®-Pave strong and porous finish provides the necessary drainage, subsequently increasing the rideable surface areas within the Pump Track. Flexi®-Pave is an ideal alternative for landscaping in this application for many reasons. It allows water drainage, provides low to almost no maintenance for city parks, eliminates the need for weed eating or watering grass. The Flexi®-Pave surface is sturdy enough to allow bikes to ride over without damaging the landscaping and to use in tandem with the actual Pump Track course. Installed by https://velosolutions.com/pump-track-races/ who now view Flexi®-Pave as the surface of choice in future installations due to all its benefits and it's pleasing visual appeal.
About Pump Track
Pump Tracks being a track for wheeled sports equipment that, when ridden properly, does not require pedaling or pushing, but a "pumping" action to maintain momentum. Originally designed for the mountain bike and the BMX scene, now, due to improved construction technology, is also used by skateboarders, and accessible to wheelchairs.
In 2018, Velosolutions in conjunction with Red Bull launched the first global pump track race series, the Red Bull Pump Track World Championships. In 2019 the winning podium included a UCI Gold Medal after joining forces with the Union Cycliste Internationale and became the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships. The future holds the Olympics in its sights and the future sure looks bright.
