Youve got to go here. No matter how long the drive is, just go. The staff are fantastic (uplift drivers in particular deserve all the beer that I hope they get). Make sure to speak to them and ask what they recommend. Most people that work there know the trails well and can stop you going down something above your ability, or just not what youre looking for.

Get there early. Youve got toget the runs in to appreciate the bikepark. Explore the various ways down, and take in some of the longer runs that take time.

Cycle up! The uplift is great, but so is the ride up. Its actually pretty easy and very beautiful. You can also ride back up from the half way fire road, which cuts out the harder bit of the climb. If youre into your enduro this is really the perfect practise for you!

Highly recommended.

Arhhhhh yeahhhhhhh! So much shred! So much fun! You just cant not have a wicked day at bikepark wales. Awesome trails with loads of techy features to test and develop skills.
Bad Points
Its all a bit 'samey' and id personally like loads more variety in terms of natural/muddy trails that dont ride well all year.

I also dont like the fact that I can pin pretty much everything I hit at any speed, knowing itll hold. This happens because the gravel they use is so grippy that when you hit a berm, the earth shifts off it's axis a bit, rather than you washing out. For this, id prefer just 1-2 more trails that arent really managed. Some stuff that is purposefully 'trimmed' but not smoothed out like the rest of the bike park.

Forget the theme parks, this now my new fix for excitement. I'm 56 and felt like a kid again wish I had this in my day. Well done Bike Park Wales you've brought back the kid in me

I love this place. I am happy to ride the blues and some of the reds, which is enough for me.
The trails are well maintained and new ones being added every year.
It is about a 3 hour drive but worth it for the 6 -9 runs I manage in the day.
The booking system on line is easy, the priority uplift booked on line is easy and well worth the money (i have ridden the XC climb once, don't see the point in doing it again)

Great place to ride. We made a weekend of it with the Forest of Dean and it was one of the best weekends we had on a bike.

Good Points
Great Variety of trails, efficient uplift service, good progression from Blue to Red to Black.
50 Shades of Black is up there in my top 3 trails to ride in the UK
Bad Points
Have to plan miles in advance to get on the uplift (usually 2-3 months for a weekend) and the climb to the top if you are riding is a beast.
They don't have much in the way of toliets/showers and the food is good if a little over priced compared to some other centres.
Always seems to be raining, but the trails do hold up really well to all weathers!

My jaw aches at the end of every session at BPW, purely due to the constant smile on my face. The trails are constantly evolving and improving. Plus there's a trail for every level of ability.
Bad Points
Only one shower with very limited drying/changing area.

The bike wash is not always available, so I've resorted to bringing water in a pressurised spray bottle to clean my bike.

Great centre, only thing that spoils it is the abundance of Orange 5's :-)

User Review

Good Points
Top café / shop set-up
Awesome progressive trails
Fast, floaty blues
Steeper, technical reds
Damn hard and rocky blacks!
Even the XC route isn't too tough to the top, the push up is even easier.
The trail centre that has it all, if it had a chairlift I'd move in.
Bad Points
Lack of uplift space means you have to book 3 months in advance
Welsh weather - 4 seasons in 1 run isn't rare (Yes, I even got snowed on in the woods!)
