BikePark Wales is the UK's number 1 mountain biking destination. We have 30 sections of lovingly created bike trail on our 850 hectare (1200 acre) site. We have an on-site uplift facility allowing riders to get a lift to the top of the hill with their bike in order to enjoy the descents, much like at a ski resort. Riders wishing to pedal to the top may also do so via a single track trail. We have trails to suit riders from intermediate to expert level rider and we also offer on-site coaching, bike hire, a lovely Cafe with log burner and an onsite bike shop. The top of our mountain offers fantastic views of Pen Y Fan and the rest of the Brecon Beacons.

As a total MTB downhill newbie I decided to invest in a morning's 1 to 1 coaching at this purpose built downhill MTB venue. I also rented a bike for the day, as my own has yet to be built. As it has been many years since I rode my Muddy Fox Courier I needed TLC, and that's exactly what... More

My friends and I visit BPW on a regular basis and got a real affection for the place. The facilities are good, but the trails are awesome. Something for people of all abilities. You need to book quite far in advance for the uplift service, but can get some real value for money out of it. Definitely recommend this place!

BPW is amazing, there is something for just about everybody.Not just for downhillers, there is plenty for this old XC rider to enjoy. Excellent facilities, and that uplift (optional). We tend to buy a "carnet" of 5 uplift tickets. We ride up once then uplift for the rest of the day. Very good value. You will wonder why you haven't... More

It may have been snowing but that didn't dampen our spirits. Book your uplift in advance to ensure you can make the most of the downhill runs. The trails are suitable for all levels and it makes a great family day out. Book an instructor to improve your skills it's well worth it.

This place is amazing and well worth the travel up from South Devon. The routes and trails are very well designed and constructed and the facilities excellent, the uplift very efficient and a no brainer to make the most out of the day. Downhill all the way !

Been to bike park several times now and again this weekend. Really good choice of trails from DH to entry level trails for beginners, offering good way to progress your riding. Uplift is quick and at the weekend extra vans laid on. Food is amazing! Just awesome! Friendly and helpful staff. Loved it and will be back again.
