BikePark Wales Unveils Re-opening Plans

Published on

BikePark Wales has confirmed it will be re-opening to riders on Monday 26th April.

Located in the heart of Gethin Forest in the foothills of the Brecon Beacons near Merthyr Tydfil, BikePark Wales is the UK’s biggest purpose-built mountain biking resort.

All riders will need to pre-book and daily pedal passes will be limited to control numbers.

Strict Covid control measures will also be in operation across the site including disinfecting all hire equipment after every use, Perspex screens at all payment points, card payments only, one-way systems and hand sanitising stations.

“It has been an incredibly tough winter for everyone, but we have been working tirelessly throughout lockdown to improve the bike park and we are so excited to share what we have done with visitors,” said BikePark Wales’ Martin Astley.

 “The site has been completely transformed and almost every aspect of the operation has been given some love,” he added.

Among the major improvements are four brand new trails, extra parking, faster check-in, a more efficient uplift service and an improved après ride experience. 

A stunning new five-kilometre-long beginners’ downhill mountain bike trail will also open on 26th April and will be running hosted ride experiences from May 2021. 

Ideal for competent bike riders looking for a first taste of off-road excitement, BikePark Wales’ green trail ‘Kermit’ delivers all the thrills and fun of downhill mountain biking with bermed corners, rock slabs, roller coaster sections and tree-lined flow sections.

With a vehicular uplift service to transport riders to the top of the trails, bike and equipment hire, coaching, guiding and on-site café, BikePark Wales has everything for an incredible day on the mountain – suitable for all levels, from beginners to pro mountain bikers.

Pre-booking for pedal passes, bike hire, beginners’ packages and uplift booking will be open from 9am on Friday, 9th April ahead of the site re-opening on Monday 26th April.
