On Saturday, April 28, 2018, the Fairfax County Park Authority and TrailsforYouth.Org opened a new bicycle pump track at Brookfield Park in Springfield, Virginia. The track is designed to allow riders of a wide range of abilities to maneuver around the track, while navigating smooth bumps (rollers) and banked turns (berms). The track project was supported by the Springfield Civic Association and funded by TrailsforYouth.Org through a Park Authority Mastenbrook Grant and community-raised matching funds. The Park Authority oversaw the construction of the project, with expertise provided by the Mid-Atlantic Off-Road Enthusiasts (MORE).
