The Town of Winthrop will soon have a bicycle pump track.
What is a bicycle pump track, you ask? It’s a continuous loop that can be ridden on a bike without pedaling, consisting of a series of rolling bumps and banked corners that allow the rider to gain momentum.
The unique idea came to the Winthrop Town Council through a local business owner, Joe Brown, who requested the use of unused town-owned land near the ball fields for the track.
Winthrop Mayor, Dave Acheson told KOZI that the council approved the use of the town’s property and added that the idea seems very popular among community members.
Acheson expects work to begin on the new pump track this spring, with full use in swing as early as this summer."CLICK HERE" for Audio
