Gillingham: BMX Pump Track

In 2016 we held a consultation with local residents and visitors of the park about introducing a BMX pump track at Queen Elizabeth Fields in Gillingham.

A pump track is:

  • a closed circuit with mounds, banked corners and jumps
  • a track that gives cyclists of all ages and skill levels the chance to move using momentum rather than pedalling
  • a great way to increase bike handling skills for younger riders
  • a way for the whole family to enjoy cycling in a fun, safe and traffic free setting
  • suitable for any children’s bikes, BMX bikes and mountain bikes

We have secured funding from the Local Growth Fund of £150,000 and are now constructing the track for completion in summer 2018.
