Valley Meadows Pump Track Update

At the March Borough Council Workshop Meeting, Cumberland Youth Cycling Development (CYCD) updated Borough Council on its plans to install a pump track at Valley Meadows Park. A pump track is a self-contained bicycling  circuit featuring hills and curves. The track is designed for both beginner and advanced riders. The track allows riders to work on their momentum and balance in a safe environment.

CYCD and BL companies, the landscape architect for the project, presented the completed preliminary design and budget for the track. They also shared a virtual ride-through of the course.

Originally, CYCD planned to fundraise for the project in 2020 and begin construction in spring of 2021, but COVID-19 set their plans back. They are now applying for various grants and hope to put the project out to bid in the fall of this year and begin construction in the spring of 2022. Construction should take two to three months.
