Family-friendly mountain biking in Myrkdalen
850 square metre pumptrack
Right outside Myrkdalen Hotel you'll find a 850 square metre pumptrack made in asphalt. A pumptrack is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features. A pumptrack can be made in different materials, we have made ours in asphalt as it's very user- friendly for all types of wheels.
This means that you can use anything from a skateboard to a bike scooter, three wheel bike or a regular bike on this track.
Biking on a pumptrack gives you skills which can be transfered to traditional mountain biking. Here you will learn how to position yourself on the bike, how to create pressure and speed without using the pedals. These are great skills to have when biking on trails.
All bike types work well on a pumptrack, but many people feel more speed and better response from the surface on a bike without suspension - such as a BMX, hardtail or a dirt bike.
Family-friendly mountain biking outside Myrkdalen Hotel
Upside the hotel we have a purpose built bike track with 3 short loops; 2 green and 1 blue. The track suits beginners and children, but there are also elements for more experienced bikers. You can use all types of bikes on this track which is open every day and is free of charge to use for everyone!
Today our bike product is mainly aimed at families who are looking for an active holiday on two wheels.
