BikePark Wales celebrates first anniversary on August 24th with new trail opening..
On the 24th August 2014 BikePark Wales will be exactly one year old. A lot can happen in a year, ups, downs and everything in between. We’d be lying if we said it has been easy, but all of the best things in life are worth fighting for right?
We would like to thank every single customer that has visited the park this first year. We hope you have enjoyed your visits. Each and every one of you is helping to create a sustainable future for this amazing facility. Our ever expanding trail crew are flat out not only maintaining but also upgrading existing trails. Checkout the all new “Insufficient finds” trail as well as improvements on Zut Alors, Willy Waver and Enter the Dragon as well as a new start to Vicious Valley.
And now for the really exciting news, to celebrate our first birthday we will be opening the first of two completely new trails for 2014 on Sunday August 24th. The aptly named A470 line is the UK’s biggest and best jump trail; this red graded trail is a work of art, each lip and landing sculpted with love and care from Welsh rock and dirt. Created as a collaboration between trail building company Back on Track and our own trail crew, A470 Line is set to be a new favourite for visitors to BikePark Wales from across the globe.
If you aren’t excited enough already, take a look at this short edit by Liam Murphy, the first in a new series of “BikePark Wales diaries” which will keep you up to date on happenings at BPW. This first episode features Trek World Racing rider Laurie Greenland shredding A470 Line in a recent test session.
A470 line will open on Sunday 24th August. We will also have many of our great sponsors in attendance to enjoy the weekend with us so stop by and say hello to the guys from Mercedes-Benz Vito Sport, Mojo/Fox, Trek and Shimano as well as the guys from MBUK.
Thanks again to everyone for making our first year such a great one, this is just the beginning, there is plenty more still to come from BikePark Wales.
Build it and they will come
