Rockland Bike Park

What is Rockland Bike Park?


In 2017, members of the biking community fundraised and built a pump track and some skills park features that comprise Rockland Bike Park.  It is accessible from the route 79 (Durham Road) entrance.   There is a family bike area surrounding the natural playground on the south side of the lot and the pump track is on the west side of the lot.  The skills area is adjacent to the lot and pump track.  The twenty miles of cross country trails can also be accessed by the east loop trail at the pump track.

What is a Pump Track?


One element of our plan is to install a pump track.  A pump track is a continuous loop of multi-level dirt that allows cyclists to generate speed without pedaling. The pump track derived its name from the pumping motion of the upper and lower body used by cyclists for balance while they bike on such a track!

Why a Pump Track at Rockland Preserve?

Besides being a fun activity that gets kids outdoors, riding a pump track is an excellent form of exercise that can be performed by anyone on any non-motorized bike.  A pump track can be used recreationally, as cross training for other sports, or as a way for youngsters to increase bike-handling skills away from traffic.

Basic Anatomy Of A Pumptrack


  • Small loop of trail
  • Trail consists of berms and rollers
  • Users “pump” their bicycle to generate speed, not pedal - Focus is on skill development & fun

What is a Skills Area?


A skills area is a dense area of bicycle challenges that work to improve balance and skill.  It is safe and appropriate for various ages and skills.  Many of the challenges at the skills area are already familiar to singletracks users including skinnies (log rides), rollers, table tops, and rock challenges.
