Snodland Pump Track, Kent

snod overview

Snodland Town Council and Community Cycle Works had been at the fore front of the campaign to improve the cycling facilities for Snodland, their initial ideas had been around a Learn To Ride area, Wheelie Strip and an all Tarmac Pump Track at the Snodland Community Centre.

Consultation with the local user group, activities groups and cycling clubs in Snodland meant that the final design would include a Learn-to-Ride area and pump track that was inclusive and progressive to encourage the younger users to build their confidence and give the cycling club a safe and fun place to run coaching sessions.

The four-straight design was implemented whilst working around site constraints like manholes, tree roots and existing play equipment to make the most of the available space and maximise the useable footprint of the track.

Working closely with the user group, we gave the straights a very progressive and engaging feel with beginners, intermediate and expert sections of the track, the features starting at a low level, making a very accessible start to encourage the less experienced users to enjoy the main track, this progression is seen throughout the whole track, and the last straight was a split straight with expert options.
