The Würth Bike Park is ready - circuit with steep curves and waves

Inauguration on Friday, November 11, 2022, 3 p.m. on the Ballenwasen sports grounds in Künzelsau

Clear the way - the Würth Bike Park has received its final touches in the last few weeks and will be officially opened on Friday, November 11, 2022. SSV Gaisbach 1973 e.V. invites all sports enthusiasts and interested parties to the inauguration at 3 p.m. at the Ballenwasen sports grounds, Ballenwasen 4, Künzelsau.

With the opening of the facility, it is also opened to the public and is available to all interested parties within the framework of the usage regulations.
The Würth Bike Park is the new pump track on the Ballenwasen sports grounds. In September, the construction project of SSV Gaisbach 1973 e.V., sponsored by Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG and supported by the municipality of Künzelsau, was completed. The park-like facility has a total area of 4,500 square meters with an asphalted area of approximately 920 square meters. The remaining area is intended as a wild meadow with recreational facilities, especially for children and families. Within less than 14 days, the company has modeled and asphalted the circuit for all kinds of roller sports equipment by hand.

What is a pumptrack?

Pumptracks are play and sports facilities where motor skills are trained on roller sports equipment. It is a closed circuit with waves, steep curves and jumps. When riding on a pumptrack, speed is built up exclusively through weight shifting and targeted pulling and pushing movements. With a little practice, the course can be ridden entirely without turning the pedals. The riding technique, which consists of targeted loading and unloading, is called "pumping" and also works with many other sports equipment. For example, a pump track can also be ridden on a skateboard, longboard, inline skates or scooter. Especially small children develop coordinative skills in the best way with a running bike while rolling on the circuit.
