School of Pump


After the first edition of the SCHOOL OF PUMP in 2022 with 4 selected stops in 4 federal states, we made a comeback in 2023 with even more stops.

In 2023, we successfully engaged around 600 students in the SCHOOL OF PUMP, introducing them to the joy of riding on pump tracks and instilling a sense of safe biking fun. We invited nine schools to five stops at pump tracks in Linz, Klagenfurt, Vorchdorf, and Knittelfeld, which we visited twice due to the cancellation of Innsbruck. The feedback from the kids, teachers, principals, and communities has been fantastic.

We are delighted to announce that the SCHOOL OF PUMP will return in 2024 with new locations and the opportunity for your school class to sign up once again.

What is the SCHOOL OF PUMP?

Pumptracks are the ideal to improve your cycling skills. By the way you also train strength, condition, coordination and bodily feelings.

Together with INTERSPORT Austria and LINES Magazine, we have set ourselves the task of getting kids and young people excited about cycling with the SCHOOL OF PUMP project.

The result is a pump track school tour that stretches across Austria. In addition to the cycling examination, we offer coachings on pumptracks for fourth graders of elementary schools so that they feel safer on the bike. In a double lession, two of our well-trained coaches teaches them the correct riding technique on the bike in a playful and competent manner, with a focus on safety and fun when cycling.

The SCHOOL OF PUMP is completely free for schools and for students. INTERSPORT Austria provides rental bikes and rental equipment. On top all participants get a cool goodie bag in form of a gym bag and a certificate for participating at the end of each unit!

The units with the students take place in the morning. In the afternoon our coaches are available for everyone from 2 – 4pm. Everyone is cordially invited to get tips and tricks from the pros and try out the INTERSPORT test bikes.
