Inglewood Pump Track in Calgary formally opened: New Playground for Cyclists

On Saturday, the Inglewood Pump Track in Calgary formally opened. The Parks Foundation, the Calgary Flames Foundation, the Alberta government, and the City of Calgary collaborated to build the track.

The track, which is situated at 7 Avenue and 20 Street S.E. has two custom-designed asphalt circuits for varying skill levels.

Visitors are encouraged to access the pump track through the scenic regional trail system or to park at the nearby Inglewood Wildlands parking area. according to the city.

According to the Calgary Flames Foundation, the circuit employs "hand-designed hills to generate an up and down pumping action rather than pedalling;" The track provides a dynamic experience for cyclists to learn how to navigate varying types of slopes and terrain. A pump track is a looping series of rollers and berms (swoopy, banked corners) for mountain bikers. It's intended to optimise your momentum, allowing you to ride with less exertion.

The city is looking to promote people cycling to this park using the pathway network and reached out to citizens for feedback through their website.

Inglewood & surrounding area have seen other various interesting amenities such as Harvey Passage: A recreational watersports area featuring spaces for canoeing, kayaking, beach space as well as a future surfing wave spot.
