SUPPORT THE CREATION OF THE
PORT JERVIS OUTDOOR CLUB PUMP TRACK
& WATERSIDE WOODS TRAILS
Artist rendering. Training track is not included in this graphic
The Outdoor Club of Port Jervis is fundraising for the construction of a pump track in the Riverside Park along the Delaware River for bike riders of all ages to enjoy. This project will break ground in the spring of 2019 with readiness of the track before Memorial Day.
What is a pump track? This will be an earthen bicycle track allowing for inexperienced riders to learn how to ride trails with humps and bumps as well providing the experienced rider a way to hone their skills while enjoying an aerobic workout. In addition, our track will include plantings within and around the boundaries allowing for everyone to learn about and enjoy native and exotic plants and vegetation while beautifying the area.
In the woods along the river will create all natural trails that will allow bikers to move to the next step in learning about riding in the woods. Once comfortable riders will then be encouraged to venture into the Watershed where they will be able to experience the 40+ miles of trails we have created. All trails in all areas will be open to bikers, hikers and runners.
Highlights: Track development for training kids to ride bikes and experience trails
Allow the experienced riders to create an aerobic workout
Allow loaner bikes as well as provide safety equipment to ride the track and trails
Open the river woods to hiking, biking and running
Invite people of all ages and capabilities to enjoy the woods and water
Open access to the river for fishing
Provide areas for community gardens next to the pump track
Introduce all users to the nearly 2200 acres of Watershed Park and Trails
