Official Opening of the Tahmoor BMX Pump Track at Tahmoor's popular DNA BMX Park
Posted on: 28.09.2017
Council is inviting members of the public to come along to the opening of the new BMX Pump Track at Tahmoor’s DNA BMX Park, 120 Thirlmere Way on Saturday 14 October 2017commencing at 10am.
Representatives from the Born to Ride Freestyle Association, as well as local BMX riders will be available on the day for interviews.
There will be free BMX, mountain biking and freestyle demonstrations facilitated by the Born to Ride crew. Riders of all ages and abilities are welcome to ride the track and there will also be a free BBQ lunch.
Mayor for Wollondilly, Judith Hannan said, “The DNA BMX Park is a hub for recreational activities and social interaction and we invite everyone to come along. The pump track caters for all ages and abilities, so if you are a first timer or a more experienced rider I guarantee it’s worth the ride.”
The project involved re-shaping the previous beginner’s run of jumps to form a circuit pump track. It was jointly funded by Council and the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership program.
Feedback from the users and usage levels indicated that BMX based activities have evolved since the construction of the original dirt jumps over 10 years ago and Council enlisted the Born to Ride Freestyle Association Inc to help select a design that is both challenging and fun for our community.
The new pump track has:
- a transfer connection between the proposed pump track and the existing jumps
- rollers throughout the track
- berms along key bends
