Middleton Bike Park
LOCATION: 4351 Schwartz Road
CORP worked with the City of Middleton to open a mountain bike park adjacent to Pleasant View Golf Course in 2010. The park originally consisted of a pump track, a jump line, and a short section of single track. It has evolved and is now miles of single-track with a short jump line, a skills section, and a paved pump track (opening fall 2023).
The single-track consists of a mix of beginner (Fairway) and intermediate (Mulligan and Slice) trails, with some more advanced features sprinkled throughout and one advanced climb (Chipshot). The jump line is a series of four tabletops located at the eastern end of the property, and the skills area is a selection of elevated ’skinnies’ located just below the jump line.
PUMP TRACK - Now Open (11/6/23)
This course is designed to use the terrain of hills and curves to maintain your speed and gain momentum as you bike the track with minimal or no pedaling. The pump track is a looping circuit of rollers, banked turns, and features that you can ride continuously without pedaling. Pump tracks can be ridden by cyclists of all ages and skill levels. You don’t need a special kind of bicycle to ride on a pump track – BMX bikes, mountain bikes, kids' bikes, and even scooters or skateboards can all be used on the pump track.
The Middleton Bike Park will be one of the largest pump tracks in Wisconsin, with more than 15,000 square feet of space, 6,000 square feet of asphalt surface, and 455 linear feet of ride lines. It will feature 7 berms, 21 rollers, and 1 Wood Wall Ride feature.
Please be courteous to neighbors and other park users by observing the following guidelines:
- For your safety, keep moving or move off the track
- Be courteous to others
- Wear a properly fitted helmet at all times
- Please ride on pavement
- Do not walk or ride on the grass inside the track
- No night riding
- No loud music
- Have fun!
What is a pump track?
The name “pump track” comes from the pumping motion used by the rider's upper and lower body (instead of pedaling or pushing) as they ride around the track. You ride the track by shifting your body to pump the bike over the bumps and through the berms.
