BikePark Wales is the UK’s first full scale mountain bike park in the heart of the South Wales valleys, built by riders for riders. We believe in making mountain biking accessible to everyone from extreme to serene.
This is a beautiful part of Wales, with traditional market towns, stunning landscapes, canal paths, castles and plenty of family attractions. The scenery here is both beautiful and diverse - rolling countryside and valleys, wide open spaces to the wild beauty of the waterfalls and caves.
