When Velosolutions were approached by the city of Riga in Latvia to bring cycling to the heart of the cities sports park, the Baltics team embraced the opportunity to build something truly unique.

What followed is a 3000 m2 pump track in the centre of Riga, accompanied by an adventure skills track, an entry level facility for all to learn on. The Velosolutions pump track forms part of a huge sports facility including a skate park, football pitch, basketball court, volleyball court and more. This puts cycling at the heart of the cities' approach to sport.

The pump track has proved to be one of the most popular features in the park and is busy with riders all day long.

This is the second Velosolutions pump track in the region. Both tracks have been built in school districts providing easy access to the cities youth and maybe a little distraction from lessons.

The inclusion of the Riga pump track in the cities major sports field demonstrates its commitment to the sport and the growing influence mountain biking has in the mainstream.
