In just 8 days time, the new MTB BikePark Wales throws open its doors and its trails for the first time. Here's the next instalment of their video series to get you even more excited.

With everything from smooth groomed trails, to natural, rooty, rocky sections, riders from beginners to expert will have somewhere to set their wheels. Add a trail centre, café, shop and rental fleet, and your every mountain biking need will be catered for.

Following the story of its creation and development - and also showcasing the rather lovely trails in a very enticing way – BikePark Wales have put together a sequence of videos. Perfect for a little Friday afternoon viewing, we reckon.

Episode 1: Origins took us back to the start – how on earth do you go from hillside to largest mountain bike park in the UK?

Episode 2: First Fix shows how the trail centre and the trails themselves are coming together.

The boundless enthusiasm of the women and men behind BikePark Wales, often in the face of various set-backs, is just a little bit inspirational. It’s certainly given us a new understanding and appreciation of the work that goes into making awesome places for us to ride.

BikePark Wales has clearly been made with tender loving care. Only 8 days to wait!
