Here are some of the best cycle tracks in Logan for kids.
Tudor Park pump track and skills loop
83-125 Clarks Road, Loganholme
One of the newest cycling facilities in Logan features seven different tracks for beginners through to advanced riders.
The pump track is a loop featuring rollers and berms designed so riders gain speed by using a pumping motion on their bike rather than peddling.
The six other tracks through the bushland have dirt jumps, timber rollers and a whale tail jump for advanced riders.
There are two tracks for beginners (Monarch and Heimlich), three for intermediate riders (Colony, Oogie Boogie and Jump Start) while a track called Monstro is recommended for advanced riders only. There is also a small skate bowl.
The various tracks, which are adjacent to the Tudor Park PCYC, are suitable for bicycles, skateboards, scooters and rollerblading.
