During the late summer of 2016 launched an updated and developed facility with Boras first pump track, 4 new mountain bike trails in the woods and an obstacle course with nine obstacles (which also can be used as utegym).

Pump Track

Short,Technical bike path at about 250 m of turns, small hills and obstacles. Cycle Playground and technical course in one. The basis for the name is that by balancing the right way and utilize the hills will be able to "pump" the arms /handlebar around the track without having to step on the pedals. Good balance, steering technique and bike technology development path.

4 MTB loops
By creating different levels of difficulty and length of the loops, the aim is that everyone should be able to find a trail that matches the individual's skill. The idea is also to be developed further through training and gradually able to take on difficult challenges in GIF terrain. The color coding on the severity of the loops follow the same label as alpine slopes, where green is the easiest and black the hardest. (Tip: During documents and links you will find a PDF of the map and info about the routes).

Bike Wash is also prepared to wash the bikes after training.

Obstacle Course(Utegym)
The obstacle course is built from pressure-treated wood, is about 100 m long and contains a total of nine obstacles. Pulse Driving and strength development.

1. Over-under. Jump over and crawl under the booms. Plyometrics, strength and agility.
2. Tricepsgång. Triceps overloaded then you should go "imminent" horizontal bars on the four-meter booms. Upper body strength and core stability.
3. The bugs. Creep on the artificial turf in the ropes. Agility and speed.
4. Fast feet. Tyres Classic which requires footwork and speed. Pants and elasticity.
5. uphill. Ascend slope and jump over the edge. Strength and skinning.
