Support for a pump track

My name is Harry Burns, I am 15 years old and have been mountain biking for around five years. Mountain biking is a big part of my life, so I was very excited to hear that there was an initiative to build a pump track in Harvard. The idea is extremely appealing to me because I have been to many pump tracks in different parts of Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine. A pump track is a small, intimate place to hang out with friends, ride bikes, practice bike skills, or relax after a ride on the local trails. A well-built pump track fits right into the environment, without feeling like it is disturbing the surrounding land and wildlife. The atmosphere at a pump track is relaxed and welcoming, and it is this aspect of community that I truly love about a good pump track.

I should also mention that, for those unfamiliar with mountain biking, a pump track is more a place to go relax after a ride, rather than only ride the pump track. Given Harvard’s excellent quantity and variety of mountain bike-accessible trails, the pump track would serve as the perfect place to go after a ride, or hang out with friends and learn new skills. It is for these reasons that I support the project, and think that it would fit very well into the community here in Harvard.
