Velosolutions have been building pump tracks around the world for over a decade and throughout that time they have witnessed the ability pump tracks have to transform communities and lives by making cycling more accessible. Whilst of course they are amazing fun for all, pump tracks have the power to unite communities, instil passion, make cycling more accessible and promote a healthy and active lifestyle. #pumpforpeace believes this should not be confined to only the most progressive and wealthy communities, everyone should be entitled to same opportunities in life.
#pumpforpeace is a global initiative building pump tracks in underprivileged communities, focused on making cycling and action sports more accessible than ever before. No matter your race, gender or religion, cycling has the power to unite communities around the world, #pumpforpeace was founded on this belief and that by making the sport more accessible we can help promote a more tolerant future.
“I have personally experienced the power of cycling in my own life. The passion for the sport was instilled with me from an early age and I carry it with me in my life each day. So often we sit back and ask ‘What can I do’? I know cycling and I have founded a company that builds pump tracks – why can’t we use this to promote tolerance and provide even the most under privileged with the same opportunities I and many of my friends have had? Well the answer was #pumpforpeace. We are using our experience, our passion and our love of cycling to help bring about change in the best way we know.” – Claudio Caluori
