Project description:

The Zurich Sports Office and the Bicycle Transport Department jointly own three mobile pump track systems. These go on a school tour in the canton of Zurich every year from March to November. One school can enjoy the modular pump track free of charge for three weeks at a time. 

This is also the case with Municipality of Bonstetten and diligently collected laps together for three weeks in the summer. Over 70,000 laps were completed during this time. That's 12 days without using a cell phone, 236,000 calories burned and over 4,600 kilometers cycled.

Target group, location & size

Cannot be measured with numbers: The social interaction! All generations, all skill levels, all roller sports equipment, all user groups come together, show consideration for one another, laugh, learn, help one another, wait, cheer on the 65-meter-long World Cup layout, which is located on the sports field in the municipality of Bonstetten in the canton of Zurich.

Special feature:

  • A total of 70,821 laps were completed on scooters, bicycles and all kinds of roller sports equipment on a track length of 65 metres. This means that a total of 4,603 kilometres were covered: The distance between Zurich and Cape Verde!
  • The kids and adults spent 295 hours pumping on the mobile waves. 12 days in which not cell phone batteries were used, but rather muscles, lungs and brains. More together!
  • Wow! 321 burgers and drinks were consumed, that's 236,000 calories, more exercise for all generations!

Inclusion, yes please. The modular pump track for all roles

It is much more important that EVERYONE can play and laugh together, whether with or without a handicap.

Cities must be made more bicycle-friendly

We also need more and better framework conditions for recreational cycling and cycling education.
