July 26 City Council Recap
Pump Track Design Contract, Fire MOU, Oaths of Office
Contract for Bike Pump Track Design Approved
The City Council approved a resolution authorizing the City to sign a contract with the American Ramp Company to design an asphalt bike pump track at the undeveloped park space at Whitney Community Park.
The contract is for $67,300, and design is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2022.
A pump track is a course designed for bicycles with banked turns and hills, also called berms and rollers, where riders travel the course with minimal pedaling. Similar paved pump tracks to the Rocklin concept exist in Temecula, CA, and Leavenworth, WA, with dirt tracks open locally in Auburn and Elk Grove.
