And 30ft. Very cool time-lapse of pump track being hand-dug. I am going to build a ramp for a roll-in and one end of the track since the lot is level. I have watched the videos of the peacock pitt and that place looks awesome, i only wish there was a layout of that track that I could see. The lost art of the "Long and Low" or "Fast and Low. Because I drew the landing as a bowl with no flat space and the bowl length is 1. It looks like you a great layout for the track with some interesting lines.
No riding pics yet. When I started the track work was really slow and then I got busy, which is a good thing. I have only had time for one ride a week and no time to build.
Good news though, went out to the track on Wednesday with a buddy and started work again. We didn't have a lot of time but we we're able to rake out all the rollers and berms and start watering the dirt. I'm going to either rent or borrow a compactor to speed up the process.
I can't wait to start riding the track. Now that I have some help I think building will start moving right along. Originally Posted by irocss This thread rocks!

This type of setup can be a great addition to your trails especially if you put steeper sets later on down the line. Because I drew the landing as a bowl with no flat space and the bowl length is 1. However, that's pretty typical in on bmx race track rhythm sections so it's good to get used to. Remember with 2 or 3 foot tall jumps, you have to make the transition mellower than a taller jump, or else there is not enough wheelbase on the surface of the jump for your bike to transition from flat ground without it feeling abrupt.
You can't put 70 degrees of arc on a lip 3 feet tall--it will be virtually unrideable. On the other hand, a 6 foot tall lip with 70 degrees of arc is a gnarly booster. As for 'degrees of arc' and trajectory. The jump does some of the work, but you and your bike do the rest. Shown in video: Line of roller and 4 big tabletops completed. Not shown in video: Another line of 2 berms, table and roller, dirt moved into place but not shaped and packed.
Not shown in video. From experience, my advice is even with a Bobcat, do not underestimate the amount of time and skilled labor required for shaping and packing!! Very cool time-lapse of pump track being hand-dug. Note that they are digging from the riding line, not next to it, or from some other big hole.
This is a good method, although it will create pits that hold water. There are ways to address that though, like having a slot drain next to the roller line. We built the track in seven days over a period of two months.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time and effort. For more info check out http: It's like double digging. The end result is a very clean looking line of dirt jumps because you are not digging random holes off to the side.
The jumps, which my friends built, in this video are designed and spaced pretty close to the above drawing except maybe with 28' or so between top of landing to next lip: Note how the builders did not dig out the gap between the launch and landing lame!!
The water will drop down and soak downwards, allowing the riding line of the pit to not hold water. This is a very well-done design for a public park: This was an awesome spot that just got dozed. The perspective and camera lens makes the jumps look shorter than they actually were though.
You might think of it as more like consecutive half-pipes dug into the ground. For a cleaner look, try to avoid digging next to the line to build the jumps. Dig only from the riding line. If you end up needing more dirt later and don't want to dig the bowl down more, then wheelbarrow it over from a future bowl.
In the end, though, it's worth it, because your trails won't have moon craters. Jason B. One thing I haven't talked about yet on here are " Roller-Tables. For lack of a better word, they are blend of both a roller and a tabletop. They are not table-top jumps because the goal is to not really to jump but rather to stay super close and skim the top, and they are not rollers because they do not bubble up or have a bowl top lid--they flatten out. This allows the rider to stay low on the table for "un-air.
Staying low means going faster. One of the cool things about roller tables is that because you can skim over them, a lot of times you can do cool nose manuals across them and then pump the backside really hard.
The Physics of Trails Flow. Every jump puts you right where you need to be for the speed that you have without any special body english , and the next lip doesn't come at you too fast or too slow.
It took me a while to figure out the connection with waves; when I first started digging, I learned some rules of thumb from older riders e. It's not that jumps look like waves or even that they are spaced the same way that waves in the ocean would be. It's the rider's position over points in time has a consistency that is wave-like. Like if you're sitting on a boat and feeling the waves, or if you're listening to music with a good rhythm most songs don't randomly speed up and slow down.
It's a position or feeling over different points in time. If you space dirt jump sets erratically, you won't "feel" like you're riding across the terrain in a wave-motion.
Not every line has to be this way.
Variety is good. Sometimes 'tech' sets should throw you off a little and make you work for it e. But, as a starting point at least. Hopefully this is helpful! So remember, it's not that you make the jumps look like these waves. It's that the rider's highest point in the air, from one point to the next, is the "peak".
I say evenly spaced over time because if your jump line is on a decline and you are gaining speed, every set could actually get both longer-gap and longer distance to the next jump, but the rider is still going to hit each peak in the air every x number of seconds.
Last night I figured what the heck and started digging in the empty lot behind the house. Terrible location: Not near as dialed as some of the others or all of them but here is my solo build https: While At Rome.
Best place ive ever ridden is the I street jumps in salt lake city. Here is a good video from helmet cam of what looks like last years set up, good amount of building since then. You get to see some of the berms and mini pump track i guess u can call it that at the end after the ladder jumps. Either way there are a bunch of cool ideas and things in this park. Most of the stuff is relatively big and not for beginners, if this is the guy's cam i think it is, he is about 6'4.
Cool video. Not sure if it has allready been mentioned; but when building a pumptrack, there should never be any flat surfaces on the track. It should either be going up, down, or turning.

Join Date Jun Posts Originally Posted by euroford as another guy from the garden let me add in another couple of tidbits. I gotta partially disagree with you here.
While you make some darn good points, particularly with the cinder blocks, consider this: If you think, even for a second, that you may have to move a jump back, build a wooden ramp, not a dirt ramp. Then you build a dirt lander. The lander can remain stationary while you can move the wooden one if need be. I started a DJ vs. Secondly, you are right, wood will degrade a bit after several years That's more than enough time to ride those DJs.
Besides, if you use a rot resistant wood like cedar, you don't have to worry about it. And if you use regular wood, just 'stain' the ends of the logs with used engine oil.
Most moisture rot that wood encounters actually startrs from the ends Also, if you don't put a lot of wood 'filler' in the ramps i. That gives you enough leeway to make adjustments. Plus, you can use the dirt you get from the drainage ditches you dig up.
Well said. I'd also like to add that someone on here in a related thread made the suggestion that you build your stunts just above your skill level Yes, while you should refrain from cutting down healthy trees, if you are building wood stunts as well as dirt jumps, like I am, big enough trees can become useful upright post supports. Also, if you have a thick thicket of trees you want a line to go through, thinning out the area a little bit can be beneficial.
It allows the breeze to flow through there easier, it also allows a bit more sunlight in for the remaining trees. This is one area where I say 'use your best judgment'. Most definitely build your jumps in a sustainable location, not some obviously outlaw spot that is going to get torn down next spring. I've seen that before but it really didn't register until you mentioned it. I'm definitely going to try that with my DJs! Should we put carpet on the landers too?
You also have to consider where you live. Here in TN we have predominately clay soil. Great write-up regardless dude. Join Date Feb Posts 3 heres my back yard mini. I don't mind sharing my 1,'s of hours of work with whoever wants to ride as long as you respect the trails and help out.
When you show up time and time and time again, case the lips and landings, set fires, leave your trash behind, and do absolutely ZERO work then you are not part of the "community"--you are a f'king poacher. I'm quite content with my "elitest" attitude in those cases.
The rest of your post is pretty good, but I don't see your point about pictures Do not post pictures of secret trails. Nice drawing and good ideas. Pump tracks are all about complete freedom. Having 4 corners of a rectangle is good. WAAAY better than having a huge oval end or turn on one entire end. Shorter radius tighter turns are better for pumping or whipping out of if you are at a slower speed. Larger radius turns soak up speed, and are only "whippable" if you are already going reasonably fast.
Therefore if you match up the 4 corners with the same radius berms, your pump track will have a consistent speed. Just note that this will happen. Join Date May Posts Finally came up with a design for the track that I think will give alot of options for different lines.

Join Date May Posts Those ideas sound good. BMX trails is all about spacing--in rhythm sections you dive into one landing into a bowl and boost out the next lip BMX tracks and starting hills They need to turn that thing into a dirt jump park 55 cmc mtbr member Reputation: Join Date Jan Posts 1, here's a little more motivation Join Date Sep Posts 1, very nice.
Join Date May Posts Finally got some time to work on the pump track plans again. Looks good, but at this point I think you just need to get started. Build the outside loop and ride it for a while THEN decide how you want the inside stuff.
Leave the super technical stuff like berms till later.
I suggest just building the 4 corner berms first, with nothing in between, then ride it to get a feeling of how fast you'll want to be going. Spacing of rollers and jumps has everything to do with speed.
Learned that the hard way. Here's another step down to step up we built or at least started last Saturday: Join Date Jan Posts 1, this spot looks well-built, smooth, with creative lines.

Join Date Jan Posts 1, this roller in the street course at the new Cedar Park, Texas, skatepark is a good example of a bubbled over or VW'd roller shape that is not peaky. Join Date Jan Posts 1, in this drawing which is to scale , 15" height from bottom of pit to peak of roller corresponds with roughly 12' actually Yeah, I saw footage of that a few months ago and fell in love!
That is still the best layout I have seen for a hybrid pump track and the prototype ideal for anything I may ever try to build. The blend of structures is just too fun! Any rider of any skill type and level can ride that thing and have a blast and feel like they are improving. Join Date Jan Posts 1, hey thanks ayenn and irocs. Join Date May Posts This thread rocks!

Nice work! I gota ask thoughif the chainlink is temporary or permanent. I know it would bother me to be jumping adjacent to a fence like that Looks really cool though.
