So many spots need a visit still but there are so many new places to check these days to do them all at once. The pump track in Roosendaal had been on the agenda since the opening over two years ago. Sometimes it just is like that. But time was on our hands (Covid-19!) and the drive was made on a sunny day. Early departure (09:00hr) to avoid the spot being too busy. The pump track location in Roosendaal can be found at the public cycling park. It's free to ride and free to park and on arrival just a handful of kids were using the giant pumptrack. It was made by Velosolutions so the typical red stripe with arrows showed the direction they wanted you to go. It had plenty to offer so going in the opposite direction to create more lines wasn't needed. The aphalt felt grippier than the asphalt in Beesel which was good as long as you stay on the bike. If not, you'll leave some skin in Roosendaal for sure.
