In 2012, the Columbia Valley Cycling Society (CVCS) oversaw the creation of a bicycle pump track in Radium, located below Rotary Park.
A pump track is a trail system consisting of small jumps and corners, which allows the rider to simply “pump” their bike over the jumps, gaining momentum as they go.
The Pump and Jump Track offer riders of all ages and ability the opportunity to hone their skills and perfect their technique. The site includes an adjacent grom loop for kids and beginners, and also includes an intermediate line with bigger hills and more opportunity for jumps.
The Pump and Jump Track is easily accessed from Radium in 3 ways:
- From the trailhead at Rotary Park on a gravel path extending down to the trail area.
- From the path off Forsters Landing Road across from Revelstoke Avenue marked by a Village kiosk and locked gate.
- From the lower parking lot at Sinclair Creek. Head down Forsters Landing Road and just before the left turn onto Horsethief Creek Road, take a sharp right turn onto the road that skirts the Canfor mill log yard. From the parking lot, ride along the main Sinclair Creek trail until you reach the bike area below Rotary Park.
The Pump and Jump Track was a project jointly funded by Radium Sunrise Rotary Club and the Village of Radium Hot Springs.
