Ruka Pumptrack and Kaltiolampi Skills Track


In late summer 2020, a new tarmac-covered pump track was built next to Ruka Ski Bistro. The pump track was built as a part of the Kuusamo Town -driven Ruka cycling trail project.

The pump track is an outdoor sports facility where anyone can train and practise their bike-riding skills on a bumpy track.  After the initial speed you move along by gathering speed by pumping motion from the top of the roller downward.

Kaltiolampi skills track

Kaltiolampi skills track is made of wooden elements placed on a track circling the pond on the grounds. By crossing and riding through them you can practise biking skills required for mountain biking.
