Havelock North Pump Track

A new track has opened at the Hawke’s Bay BMX Club in Havelock North that will provide a space for even more activities on wheels – not just BMX riders.

The club officially opened the new pump track beside their existing track in Romanes Park that has been home to BMX training and racing since the club was formed. The current limestone track covers 7000 m2 and has been built and designed to National BMX standards.

BMX Club previous president and life member Jason Waite said the current BMX track did not allow scootering or skateboarding as it could damage the specialised surface.

“Having a pump track accessible on the same site, that is suitable for all wheels will mean even more users can enjoy an appropriate place to participate in their chosen activity. Cycling is such an important part of all kids’ lives, such as riding to school or socialising with friends. The pump track can help build the bike skills needed so they can safely commute to places on their bikes or progress their skills to then ride the Hawke’s Bay mountain bike tracks.”
