The UK’s first uplifted green trails, new visitor welcome and bike hire centres, landscaping improvements and more are all coming to Bike Park Wales in 2020.
It’s been six years since Bike Park Wales first opened it’s doors and during that time the park has welcomed visitors from all over the world. Starting with a mere 28 trails, there are now more than 40 and over the next 3 years this will continue to grow with some exciting new additions.
As well as more blue to black trails, a top to bottom green trail that can be accessed from the the uplift will be added along with a new a new visitor welcome and bike hire centre to make signing in and getting on the hill faster than ever. The landscaping improvements that will double the size of the patio and make it a more enjoyable place than ever to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat post ride. All of this is planned for completion by Spring 2020 and then a second phase of development will follow in late 2020 that will bring more car parking, a shower and toilet block and further landscaping improvements. It’s going to be a busy time at BPW.
BikePark Wales co-founder Rowan Sorrell says
“We are really excited to finally be adding a full-blown green trail from the top to the bottom of the hill to our trail network, it’s been crying out for it and will open up the hill to more riders of all ages.
Riders can expect a flowing singletrack descent that gives a genuine mountain bike trail experience and is an easier version of our blue flow trails with lower speeds and less gradient. A smooth and undulating descent take riders through a mixture of open and wooded terrain with great views and features along the way.”
And co-founder Martin Astley added:
“Taking the step to commit to the big infrastructure improvements we have planned over the next 18-24 months is a big one, but it’s all about continual improvement of the BPW experience. This includes everything from the trails to the speed of check-in, the toilets, the parking, the food, it’s all part of the day. The site will be transformed over in the next couple of years and we are really excited for everyone to see it.”
The new green trail should be open by late April 2020 and the Park will be open as normal throughout the redevelopment.
