The newly merged Philadelphia Parks & Recreation Department (PPR) has teamed up with the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia (BCGP), Advanced Sports Inc, Neighborhood Bike Works, and the bicycle shops of Philadelphia to launch the Philly Pumptrack project; the city’s first ever, public pumptrack.
Pumptracks are one of the fastest-growing attractions in biking, are small in scale and can be enjoyed by cyclists of all ages and skill levels. A pumptrack is fun and teaches riders essential riding skills while building fitness, all in a low-risk environment. A pumptrack in Philadelphia will provide a place where young and old can ride bikes in safe numbers and in mixed-age groups. The Philadelphia Pumptrack will be a venue where riding and spectating can be a community affair.

Dear Friends of the Philly Pumptrack,
Many people have been asking us how they can donate to the Pumptrack. As we are a project of the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, they set up a donation page for us! Please help us raise money for bike parts, better security and more pop-up tents to provide shade and shelter for our visitors. Donations through this site are tax deductible.
Please help us provide more opportunities to put more kids on bikes, and get our dedicated volunteers better rain wear.
Heidi, Harlan and Kenn

This week, Ken, Kelly and Finn Dietch donated a brand new Honda EL 200 Generator, the silent generator we were raising money for! Thanks to the Dietch Family and to many more rides for Finn and Dad at the PhillyPumptrack. Can't thank you enough.
