Project Details

Recreational cycling for fitness and wellbeing will receive a boost in Burnie as Council prepare to design and construct a new bicycle pump track and mountain bike trails at the View Road Reserve.

Council appointed Ridemore Pty Ltd to design and build the tracks which offers an alternative to the initial concept design. The Ridemore design offers the following key benefits for users with a range of cycling skills and experience:

  • Easy access to the pump track which is to be at the lower (carpark) level
  • A separate children's zone within the pump track
  • Reinvigorate the existing dirt piles used by the Burnie Challenge to create dirt jumps
  • Three descent mountain bike trails on the hillside above the carpark that provide an exciting experience for mountain bike riders separate from the shared pathway around the Reserve.

 

Update: Tuesday 21 December

The MTB trails and dirt jumps are now open to the public.

The downhill trails are of varying difficulty so the public is encouraged to assess these before use. A temporary sign has been placed near the dirt jumps to advise the difficulty ratings of the trails. Permanent signage and trail markers will be installed early next year also.   

Please look after this new facility - bins are now in place and users are encouraged to make use of these.

The contractor, Ridemore will be back on site mid-January to continue the work on the pump track and this will be completed 4-6 weeks after they return to site.

Rules to keep us all safe

  • For mountain bike use only. No motorbikes.
  • Always wear appropriate safety gear including helmet, gloves, protective padding and eye protection.
  • The downhill trails are of varying difficulty. Always inspect trail before using and assess against your skill level.
  • Show respect and consideration for other users of this facility.
  • Alcohol or smoking is not permitted.
  • Dogs must be kept on leash in this area.
  • Do not degrade the trails or jumps through misuse or modification.
  • Dispose of litter thoughtfully.

Enjoy safely and have fun!
