I've just discovered a pump track in Nepal Reserve, just 5 minutes from my work. Lunchtimes will never be the same again. :D

Wow! either the trail pixies have been hard at work or it doesn't get a lot of use. It's in pretty darn good nick.

Speaking of pump tracks does anyone in CHch know anything about the one at Pioneer sport Centre. When I walked past it yesterday, it looked like it had been re-graded. Might just be wishful thinking.

The Miramar one works best if you ignore the jump line and pump the small circuit - it's pretty hard work to get back from that southern berm otherwise.
