The Mount Gambier Pump Track

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Mount Gambier Pump Track is a community facility which responds to strong community demand for fit-for-purpose cycling related infrastructure in Mount Gambier. Its development was prioritised through the development of a range of Coucil's strategic plans, including its Youth Engagement Strategy, endorsed by Council in late 2017.

In 2019, Council made provision for the track development in its annual budget and Swiss based company Velosolutions was engaged by to deliver the $150,000 project which incorporated the right to host at least two Red Bull Pump Track World Championship qualifying meetings locally.

Located adjacent to the existing BMX track facility in Hastings Cunningham Reserve, the positioning of the facility allows families and young people to access the pump track on their bikes and scooters via the rail trail corridor.

The durable all weather facility is designed to be accessible for first time riders and kids while still providing a challenge for more experienced riders. A pump track bridges the gap between a skate park and a BMX track and enables easy access for people to get involved.

Mountain bike and cycle tourism is a growing sector nationally and internationally and Coucncil's investment in this facility provides Mount Gambier with an opportunity to build on its strengths as a cycling destination and provide economic benefit to the city.
