Flathead Area Mountain Bikers is building a pump track in Armory Park in Whitefish!! You might be asking yourself, "What is a pump track?" A pump track is similar to a scaled down BMX track. The Armory Park Pump Track features rollers, small jumps, and banked turns. The general premise of a pump track is that riders can maintain speed and ride through the looped track without pedaling, propelling themselves through the track by shifting their body weight, or “pumping”, throughout the track contours.
We have raised over $17,000 from our great community for this project thanks in large part to the Great Fish Community Challenge, and matching donors who gave to the Whitefish Community Foundation! Thank you to everyone who has donated - we appreciate your support! There's still time to donate directly to FAMB, and we're also happy to have volunteer helpers as we continue to build the track out. If you own an excavation business and might be able to help us with machine time, clay fill, or landscaping materials, or just want to give back to this great community resource, please contact us! Ready? Set? Get pumped!!
FAMB thanks the Whitefish Community Foundation, the Great Fish Community Challenge, and so many donors who made the Armory Pump Track possible!
