Pump track plans are in the works

Hey Lee,

This video is great!


We are putting in a pump track under a highway overpass to keep us out of the Texas sun. Have you drawn a blueprint of the course in the video? This art is evolving fast and we would like to leap frog a bit from the current Best Standard Practice. Shoulder standing is good. We have 40′ x 50′ marked, but could grow either dimension if needed to get to BSP.

Thanks again for the book and the site,


Hey Ed.

Thanks man. I have yet to measure the individual features (sorry Brian), but here’s the overall track layout.

I promise I’ll post the exact measurements next week. We’ve also been doing some landscaping. The infields are now flagstone … HOA eat your heart out!

    Lee did you get a chance do do the dimensions I have an area about the same size and want to get a better idea of what I can fit there. I have finally convinced the wife to let me build a track. Pump track Madness!!!

    Dont sweat it, I know how it is to be busy. I did some layout tonight and I think my track will be a lot like yours, I have 6.5′ inside radius on my smaller turns (jacuzzi and kitchen berms) and 8.5′ inside radius on my large turn (back berm). My “S” is using a 9′ inside radius on both turns. My working area is about 45’x50′ the wife wont give up any more than that, I will have to try for more later.

    That sounds really good. We had a massive pump sesh here today, and it was super fun.

    HEY, if you’ve got more space than a typical backyard, then build BIGGER.

    We’ve got one 30 yards in diameter (oval cut longwise), and it could easily be longer. Remember, Lee designed most of these for SMALL SPACES. You don’t have to do that.

    Did you ever get the pump track built? If so, where in TX is it located. I’m in the North Dallas area and looking to build one, but I’d like to ride one first.
