As Morski writes, the Porec adrenaline bike park has been opened at the Porec City Beach on the site of the former Colonia Iulia Parentium beach bar, the first of its kind on the Croatian coast.

With this move, Porec has enriched its overall tourist offer, which can be enjoyed by both all kinds of recreationists, as well as participants of the summer camp there. The Porec adrenaline bike park, which includes a pump track and skills polygons, is intended for bikes, scooters, skates and rollerblades, and is located near the beach. There’s also an outdoor gym, a pump track and a newly renovated children’s park.

The pump track extends to 902 square metres and is intended for all generations. It’s a track that looks like a continuous loop of flatter planes and hills that can be ridden without pedaling. The shape of the track allows users to just have fun, and also functions as a relatively safe sports activity covering an area that can be smaller than a basketball court.

The pump tracks are suitable for all sizes of bicycles, skateboards, rollerblades, scooters and the like. Cyclists of all ages and technical readiness can ride on the track, and it’s perfect for learning basic skills and tricks, as well as for training top cyclists, as it requires agility and speed. Instead of pedaling or pushing, users on the pump track track start by switching the position of their bodies up and down.

The city beach was chosen as the location for the new Porec adrenaline bike park due to the high frequency of cyclists which head in this direction, and the study of cycling development predicted a bike park right there, in accordance with current urban plans and with the approval of the Local Board of Anka Butorac, would do very well. Porec is continuing to invest in its cycling infrastructure, so the plan is to brand the Mirna – Limski kanal trail, install new signalisation, print new bike maps, arrange promotional actions for cyclist safety on the road and engage in similar infrastructure investments.

The pump track is integrated into the environment, and during the arrangement, the trees were not felled, but new ones were planted.
