Sombrio is teaming up with Bike Magazine, Boombotix and Ride SFO to bring their pumptrack to San Francisco this Saturday, November 3. Everyone is invited to join the party. The pumptrack will be set up from 3pm to 7pm in Lot C of the AT&T Park (1144 3rd Street). The event is free for all to attend with demo bikes, helmets and pads available for use.
The Sombrio Pumptrack has been travelling around Canada and the US for the last two months and has been set up at events including Cranworx, InterBike, The Tara Llanes Classic, and Outerbike. Everywhere it goes the track inspires an audience of riders to try it for the first time, to ride it faster or to double the whoops (evenly spaced rollers).
Pumptracks instill skills that transfer to the trails, they teach you how to pump the terrain to gain speed, improve your cornering, maintain momentum and most importantly how to have fun on your bike!
Sombrio is an authentic Freeride mountain bike apparel company based in North Vancouver, they believe that the basic bicycle is the catalyst to a better world. More information on Sombrio can be found at www.sombriocartel.com.
