East Port turns into ‘pumptrack’ for afternoon


The American Ramp Company currently is taking pumptracks on free demonstration tours throughout the country and, at the invitation of the CLPOA, made a stop in Canyon Lake last Friday afternoon, July 15.

As the dozens of youngsters who tried it found out, the pumptrack is a structure with hills that help propel bikes, skateboards and scooters forward. The size of the track set up on the basketball courts at East Port Park was 54 feet long by 25 feet wide. One parent who inquired about what it would cost to buy such a track says he was told $35,000.
