Pump tracks have proven popular in the City of Cockburn with plans to upgrade the bike track at Spearwood Skate Park next year.
The City wants your input on a draft concept which includes improvements for all skill levels, such as three intermediate jumps plus a b-line for those less experienced to practice and develop jumping skills safely before progressing.

by completing a quick survey to tell us what you like about the draft concept, to be built within a similar footprint to the old track with a slight increase in size to accommodate features and rider safety.
The track layout at the reserve’s south-east corner has been developed with input from local off-road and BMX bike riders as a one-way directional track including a start point, three intermediate skill level jumps and a conventional pump track including berms and rollers.
Existing trees will provide a shaded spectator zone and informal seating with salvaged log seats is proposed near the track.
The track will be built from durable materials and include limestone boulders for retaining the higher track edges and also providing informal hang out locations.
The new track will be the fifth established in the City in recent years.
View the plans at Spearwood skate park, 469 Rockingham Road (near Troode Street) on 12 February 5-6pm.
