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.

Rode here with a couple of friends for the first time for a half day in a working week. Absolutely loved the quality of the facilities, the trails & the enthusiasm of the knowledgeable staff team. January and February are their quiet months, with super-fast uplift turn-arounds, so a good time to go if you get the chance. We stayed... More

Well worth a 500+ mile round trip from Leeds. Myself and a friend drove down the night before and stayed over at the local premier inn so we could be up and ready to go for the first uplifts. The process of arriving and getting your uplift ticket could not be easier as everything is very well signposted, including how... More

A great centre offering plenty of trails for even the craziest of mountain bikers. There is also a bike workshop which came in handy during my visit. They fixed my brakes and I was able to go back out on the trails again in less than an hour. Well worth a visit.
