Kimberley is another step closer to having a pump track built, as the Kimberley Trails Society (KTS) announced earlier in March that Velosolutions (VS) has been awarded the contract for the project build.

“After careful consideration and reviewing all competitive bids, we were honored to receive one from VS,” KTS said in a social media post. “Their expertise and commitment to high quality build stood out among from the rest.

“With Velosolutions at the helm, we’re confident that the Pump Track will exceed our expectations and become an incredible addition to our community.”

According to their website,, Velosolutions has developed over 700 pump tracks around the world and specializes in creating unique tracks, tailored to their specific locations, for a wide range of skill levels.

“Their track record of excellence and innovation in building world-class bike facilities speaks for itself,” KTS said.

Over the coming months, KTS will be working closely alongside Velosolutions as well as the City of Kimberley in order to finalize the concept designs for the pump track and facilitate this stage of the project.

Additionally, with regards to the rest of the Bike Park Revitalization Project, the Request for Proposal (RFP) for the park’s dirt jumps should be formally awarded by the City of Kimberley within a matter of weeks.

Construction on the project is projected to begin in summer of this year, and be completed in the fall.

Phase one of the project entails mobilization and site preparation. Phase two is the spreading of current pad material and the removal of any organics, plus the installation of draining. Phase three is the shaping of the actual track, which in phase four will have asphalt laid on it. Phase five is landscaping and finally phase six involves branding, safety line painting and overall finishing work.
