Pump Track Cycling

New Cycle Track near Lothlorien

New Cycle Track near Lothlorien:

Allithwaite is a village two miles north-west of Grange-over-Sands.

A new cycling facility has recently opened. It is less than a mile away from Lothlorien holiday cottage in Kents Bank.

Allithwaite Community Centre grounds now has its own cycling pumptrack.

Pumptracks are man-made closed circuits with “roller” bumps in between and banked corners at each end.

Additionally, the tracks are designed to be ridden without pedalling.

As a full-body workout, riders use their body to “pump” – or push down into the dip after an elevation and pull up before the crest of a mound – throughout the continuous loop.

Furthermore, by absorbing and compressing the bike over the rollers, the rider converts gravitational force and downward thrust into speed.

In this case, a £3,000 donation towards the cost has been made by the annual Fred Whitton Challenge Cycle Sportive.

We invite you to stay at Lothlorien
