According to the post, the pump track is a continuous track that is ridden without pedaling, and that speed is created by going up, over, and down bumps in the track.

The grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on July 14 at 4 p.m. at the track in Peaks View Park, according to the release.
