Newly opened in 2013, Bike Park Wales aims to bring the style and substance of parks like Whistler to the British Isles…and it’s looking good!
On a hillside in Merthyr Tydfil, they’ve packed in loads of downhill tracks, miles of single-track on graded trails, a trail centre and shop with an impressive rental fleet. Care has been taken to vary the terrain too, so you’ll find smooth and groomed trails side by side with rocky, natural stuff too. There should be something for everyone.
You can book on the uplift service if you want to pack in the runs, or ride back up for the workout. Be warned, it can get pretty busy, so we recommend booking in advance!
