Cheddar Pump Track
Pump track designed with skateboarding in mind, commissioned to compliment the existing skatepark and iconic Cheddar reservoir
We were appointed by Cheddar Parish Council and Ride Mendips to provide a pump track to compliment Cheddar skatepark and the area surrounding Cheddar Reservoir.
The addition of a pump track aimed to broaden the user base of the popular skate park and increase the capacity of the facility, providing a resource that enables people of all abilities to develop their skills and encourage more bikes to reinvigorate the cycling community in the area.
The client wanted to include a freestyle element to the track where possible to cater for the skateboarders. Taking this on board, we designed a pump track with a fully surfaced asphalt section inside the perimeter pump track route.
This is a unique concept developed by Velosolutions and it here has been integrated into a full pump track. On the inside there is a ‘donut’ feature. It creates opportunities for riding the track with different lines and options to allow users to be even more creative with their riding.
