A new cycling facility in Allithwaite (near Lothlorien) has recently opened.
Allithwaite Community Centre grounds now has its own cycling pumptrack.
Pumptracks are man-made closed circuits with “roller” bumps in between and banked corners at each end.
Additionally, the tracks are designed to be ridden without pedalling.
As a full-body workout, riders use their body to “pump” – or push down into the dip after an elevation and pull up before the crest of a mound – throughout the continuous loop.
Furthermore, by absorbing and compressing the bike over the rollers, the rider converts gravitational force and downward thrust into speed.
In this case, a £3,000 donation towards the cost has been made by the annual Fred Whitton Challenge Cycle Sportive.
We invite you to stay at Lothlorien
