The Sweet Little Track (SLT) is designed for a small space, beginner builder and beginner-intermediate riders. Advanced riders can have fun too: Go faster or turn the rollers into jumps.

This track is simple to build — perfect for first-time pump track builders.

Beginning and intermediate riders will love the outside loop. They’ll probably ride counterclockwise all day long.

More advanced riders will enjoy the interior options, which multiply the possible routes and teach quick, precise changes of direction. This is a massively useful trail riding skill.

Track overview

SLT packs all this goodness into a small space:

The total footprint is 60×40 feet (18×12 meters). If you build retaining walls on the backs of the berms, you can shrink this to about 54×34 feet (17×11 meters).

Long straights with round rollers help you build speed.

A big, steep 160-degree berm lets you pull serious Gs. Super fun!

Perfectly shaped 100-degree berms carry great speed and teach you pump all those sweet pockets on trails.

Crossover lines add technical challenge and increase the number of lap options.

Your ready-to-build plan includes:

Password protected PDF that can be viewed on any device. It can be printed as well.

Overhead view with plot points.

Side views of rollers and berms.

Dirt quantity estimates, with ways to reduce the amount of dirt needed.

Drainage advice.

Basic building instructions. For more details, see the ebook Welcome to Pump Track Nation.

If you follow the directions, you’ll be guaranteed a sweet-riding track. Save tons of money and time: Do it right the first time.

Plan thrice. Measure twice. Build once!

    Hi Lee,
    I’ve been reading my copy of your book back to front many times now and I purchased the plans or SLT track, and I was wondering do you send the pdf to the email on my paypal account? Anxious and ready to pull the trigger on some topsoil and a Bobcat for a couple of days. I have 65′ long X 23′ wide that tapers to 30′ wide so that track looks like a perfect fit. I was going to pull the trigger on 17 yards?

    Hi Lee, Did you see a Paypal purchase a couple of days ago from me for the SLT? I got the notification from Paypal and have checked spam folders etc. I applaud the generosity you show many customers but I’m happy to pay for your expertise. I have a paddock, a big mound of dirt, a 45HP tractor and 5 very keen junior track builders ready to get started. Cheers, Guy Ellingham

    Hi,, we are looking to add a pump track to our pub on the beach,, but ,, being on the beach we have to build with beach sand ,,do you have any ideas //plans we can buy that includes building with. Beach sand?

    Sand is not great for pump tracks! One option would be to mix cement into the sand you use for your track. Be sure to test a section before you commit to the whole build!

    I’d love to build something like this for my 3 boys. Is this plan enough instruction for a single mom that knows NOTHING about pump tracks or biking? I’m willing to put in the work as long as the instructions are easy enough to follow for a complete novice! Also, I’m working with a low, flat area next to my house. Does the plan include drainage ideas? Thanks!!

    Dear Lee
    I am from Quito in Ecuador and I am interested in building a pump track to teach children with ages from 4 to 14 years, I have a lot of 20×40 meters
    I have seen the track that you call “The best suburban pump track” and the one called “Sweet Litle Track” I would like to know if there are plans of these tracks and which of the two I would recommend for my purpose.
    Thank you.

    Freddy, Sweet Little Track will work better for your situation.

    The old ‘suburban” track was in my back yard. I’ve learned a lot of about pump track building, and I don’t make them like that any more — especially for a public space.
