BIKE TRACK BUILDERS

Chapeltown - Sheffield

In winter 2011 Bike track was contracted to create Pump Track at Chapeltown, Sheffield.

Due to the limited budget for the project the existing shale material was to be used as a finish to the track.

This allowed a multi lined track to be designed around the existing trees on the site. Then main first straight runs down the right hand side of the site with the return on the left. As the natural slope of the area is considerable we designed a top and bottom loop which can also be linked together. This means not so confident riders can stay on the top loop where it is easier to control their speed.

Natural drainage was incorporated into the build and the slope of the area used to disburse water away from the track line.

The project was carried out for Sheffield City Council.
