I'm part of a group from Growlers Gulch Racing that is building a bike park in Castle Rock, Washington (Exit 49 on Interstate 5).

Tweaking will go on for some time, but we were able to complete both a beginner and advanced pump track this summer and feel great about that.

I'll start by saying that in this case I certainly realize that bigger doesn't necessarily mean better, but here's what I'm wondering - the advanced track is 320 feet long, with 36 rollers and 13 berms. Somebody told me that would make it one of the bigger pump tracks in the Northwest. However, I don't want to make that statement until I get some confirmation.

Any relevant feedback you can provide would be appreciated.

Looks awesome! Here are a few shots of Whistler's track up above the boneyard. I've heard there are others around the valley.

This year...



Last year (notice no rollers in the middle of the inside berms)...



At some point it had a wooden deck in the middle...

I would consider myself an expert in this matter, 320 feet is LONG.

Is this track running yet and if so, how many laps are people getting on it (without pedaling) before getting too tired to continue pumping?

Is this track a single direction track or does the design allow for direction changes and transfers?

The track was designed to be run in any direction with multiple lines to keep things fresh, interesting and not at all boring.

As the track was laid out we made a few small changes from what was on paper as well as a very large change in cutting down the overall size of the track to allow more room for our other features in the future.
