Ready to Roll: BYAG Celebrate New Pump Track Opening

by Brighton Council

Get your bikes ready! Brighton Youth Action Group (BYAG) are hosting an event to celebrate the opening of the new pump track, which also coincides with Youth Week Tasmania.

The pump track opening will be held on Saturday 13 April from 12 – 3pm at the Bridgewater Foreshore Playground, Edding­ton Street, Bridgewater. Jordan, a member of the Brighton Youth Action Group, said, “As the organ­isers of the Youth Week event, we are absolutely rapt that two local brothers, Tylah and Blaine from Gagebrook, will be able showcase their BMX riding skills for our community at this brand new world class pump track, right here in our backyard. We can’t wait!! It’s going to be a great day.”

Free to attend, there will be a BMX display hosted by Southern City BMX Club, with some bikes available for attendees to test their skills on the new track. Food and music will be provided by Material Institute and Create Crew will run a fun street art activity.

John Flack, Youth Worker at Brighton Council shared that the opening of the pump track on the Bridgewater Foreshore during Youth Week this year is a great way to celebrate the resilience and aspirations of our young people. “This is a track that has been designed and built to international standards. For me it is a symbol of the many and varied journeys of our young people filled with hope, growth, and the courage to chase dreams. Pump tracks have been shown to not only help kids build healthier bodies and minds but inspire more creativity along with positive and happy vibes.”

The event, while geared towards youth, is appropriate for the whole family. “There’s a real family focus – it should be a great day for our community,” said John. “The pump track is an asset to Brighton and we can’t wait to celebrate the opening.”
