MoBikeFed comment: For those who don't know:

"A pump track is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by riders 'pumping'--generating momentum by up and down body movements, instead of pedaling or pushing. It was originally designed for the mountain bike and BMX scene, and now, due to concrete constructions, is also used by skateboard and scooter riders, and accessible to wheelchairs."
