Bike Park Wales without uplift
Is Bike Park Wales still worth a visit if I don’t have the uplift? Are the climbs of interest or will it just be a slog to get to the descents?
The uplift is fully booked for weeks and weeks and weeks so wondering whether to still visit or plan some “traditional” riding instead.Posted 3 years agomattjgSubscriber
there is only 1 ‘official’ climb (well 2, ST and fire road, they are parallel), it’s OK as long as you are not on a ‘sled’ (or ‘rig’) and used to riding a bit, I didn’t mind the climb at all.
bear in mind also you’re not obliged to do top to bottom every run, you could session the bottom 1/3 for instance which has lots of interesting bits
on the flip side the average descent gradient is steeper (and faster) than a typical trail centre so you would proportionally spend more time climbing out of the total. I used it as chill out time.

My next visit will be pedaling up on the HT for a Day (Whenever I get a spare day)…
So long as you have some gears and settle into it you’ll be fine, I’d recommend taking the fire road route unless you really like singletrack climbing, it’s quicker and smoother and saves some of your energy for enjoying the descents…Posted 3 years agocreameggMember
what welshfarmer said. Usually spaces (at £4 a pop) available with minimal waiting time ime. East to mix a few climbs with a few uplifts.
Climb is not that bad anyway- I prefer the fire road that runs parallel with the singletrack climb, steep in one bit- rest is easy, takes about 25 mins (average fitness)Posted 3 years ago
