Bike park Wales!
a mate of mine went today and sent me text updates (we going there tomorrow) mostly along the lines of “reds are crazy” and “blacks are mental”, he did phone to say that the black runs are unlike anything else in South Wales and are the trails he’d ridden today were “quite seriously steep”Posted 4 years ago
Having been involved in the project I am very biased but today was, wow!Posted 4 years ago
Think we had about 800 visitors and the trails were perfect. Due to the amount of trails, they were quiet.
It’s like visiting 10 centres & dh tracks in one.
There is something for everyone. I did about 9 runs on the uplift and mates pedalling the climb did 3-5 laps.
See you there soon. 🙂LoCoMember
Rode it Wednesday, blue and red, very very good, not anything like it in uk, uplift will be 10 mins ish as mentioned red is black by some centres trail grading systems, but totally rideable, had I mentioned it ace 😆Posted 4 years ago
May see me in back of filming too 😉 swerved the interview offer
My understanding is the blues are like FoD/Glentress blues, the reds and blacks like trail centre blacks and reds and the Pro line like a full on DH track
Happy to be corrected.
This video shows some of the blacks and they don’t look as bad as I was expecting…

blues were easy, the reds were pretty easy, (even though I fell off). Didn’t get to the blacks. TBH I don’t really see it as a DH location, I was on my DH bike and wished I have my covert. If I had got to the blacks it might have been different. A couple of the lads I was with rode the blacks on their 130 and 150mm bikes and said they felt that they had the right bikes.Posted 4 years agophilwarren11Member
I got 10 runs in yesterday, probably could have done 11 without a puncture.
The blues are stupidly fast and flowing, with willy waver being the best imo. The reds are really good with some nice features, nice change to see some drops and jumps thrown into them, the blacks are more natural feeling again with even bigger drops and jumps, that step down/road gap is a monster. I was on a stumpy evo and apart from wanting dual ply tyres (going too fast for 18stone) i didn’t feel under biked at all.
No idea who thinks this is beyond south wales stuff, some of the blacks felt like stuff at Smilog and Afan masts etc.. which is good.
Uplifts did and will get quicker, but its not an issue as hardly waited and was a bit of a break after the runs, sixtapod onto willy waver is over 2 miles long.
Amazing place, they done a superb job.Posted 4 years ago
Was told today that there was over 900 visitors and not one of the trails were busy.Posted 4 years ago
There was a 6yr old boy and a 56 year old lady riding the easyiest blues.
My 160mm bike was more than enough for everything I ride. I wouldn’t hit the pro lines on any kind of bike tho.
