The latest lockdown restrictions have once again hit Bike Park Wales hard. The latest Welsh government rules on the pandemic have resulted in the team having to close the gates and issue the following statement on their Facebook page..
We are devastated to announce that due to the localised lockdown announced in Merthyr Tydfil today we are left with no option but to close the park again until restrictions are eased. Merthyr is the smallest borough in Wales and over 99% of our visiting riders come from outside of the borough, as they can no longer legally visit us we are left with no choice.
The restrictions will be reviewed by Welsh Government every 2 weeks so we will be suspending bookings in 2 week blocks every Monday. If you have a booking with us that is affected (i.e it is in the next 2 weeks) you will receive an e-mail confirming that your booking has been suspended with instructions on how you can move to another date of your choice. As with the last lockdown, your support in holding your booking with us is hugely appreciated.
Our visitor welcome team will be doing their best to respond to queries but please do move your booking following the instructions in your suspended booking confirmation if you can as we are receiving thousands of enquiries. The bike park will be closed to ALL riders from 6PM this evening, please respect the closure, do not attempt to ride on site and put yourself and the park at risk by ignoring the rules as it only puts more pressure on our team at a very challenging time. Stay safe everybody, we will be back as soon as possible, we’ve had an amazing 2 months since we re-opened and have enjoyed seeing so many people getting a much needed release on our trails.
