Glenbourne offers something for everyone. The jump lines are suitable for beginner, intermediate, or advanced riders and the pump track sits in a wide-open, dog-friendly park. This is a park that the entire family can enjoy and it’s just minutes off the peninsula in Halifax.

The expert line feaures some devilishly fun flow, as well as some large jumps for pulling out the bag of tricks.
Aside from these lines is a beginner line. It's a really fun beginner rhythm line to whet your apetite for air.
Some peoples' favorite feature of the park is the pump track. It's pretty large and has evolved over the years.

Keppoch - Kinsmen Pump Track, SwitchCraft, Riverside and Chicken Cougar Trails
The Kinsmen Pump track is just plain awesome. It's fast, flowy and there's so many secret lines you'll feel like you're in a Tony Hawk video game as you unlock them with your new skills.
Chicken Cougar is the first trail of its kind in Nova Scotia. Designed as a beginner / intermediate flow trail, Chicken Cougar boasts some massive berms, flowy lines and some secret jumps you'll discover as you practice the course. It runs from the top of the hill almost to the bottom.
New Glasgow Bicycle Skills Park
Built several years ago, this park has not ever received any official updates or maintenance. The little raised pump track is fun in all weather conditions.
The jump lines feature wooden roll/drop ins and still flow reasonably well.
Contact local Councillors and MLAs to push for maintenance. We would love to see this park receive the boost it requires.
