Evelyn Reserve - Proposed Purpose Built Bike Track

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In June 2020, Council consulted the community to understand the demand for bike facilities at BJ Hubbard Reserve and the surrounding area.

Based on the feedback received, Council has now undertaken an assessment of a number of reserves in Ringwood North, to determine where a purpose built bike facility would be best located. Evelyn Reserve has been identified as the most suitable location due to its ease of access, space and current reserve features including a, playground, flying fox, football goals and basketball ring.

We are now seeking further feedback from our community, reserve users and bike enthusiasts on their level of support for a purpose built bike track at Evelyn Reserve, and whether a pump style track would be supported.

A pump track can be described as:

  • A short, all-abilities bike track that allows riders to practice their skills in a safe and fun place.
  • It has a smooth surface and beginner riders can roll slowly around the track as they build their confidence.
  • More advanced riders can practice cornering, jumping and riding smoothly to maintain their momentum.
  • Racing on pump tracks is very popular and is very attractive for spectators as they can see the whole course.
