UKBP For Sale
Ukbikepark for sale! Closed until further notice.
Not been any easy decision but after a lot of thinking over the holiday period I’ve finally decided to sell the park. I’ve been cranking out the park for the last 10 years and need a change.
There are 3 possible outcomes –
1. Sell the park to a private individual – things will carry on a normal
2. Sell it to club
3. Sell everything off, flatten the trails, remove the car park and cabin etc.
What I’m selling is company the Ukbikepark Ltd, included within that is primarily the planning permission to use the site as a cycling venue with permission for the trails, cabin, car park, toilets, access track within the 22 hectares site – only Ukbikepark has been granted the planning permission. The land owners the Forestry Commission are offering a commercial lease for 8 years + to run the site. For the right to use the land with the uplift track, trails, start ramp, bridge, cabin, carpark I’m asking £20K. Other assets such as kitchen equipment, bike trailers, timing gear, toilets etc would be available to purchase on top of the base price. The max deadline is the end of March to have it all handed over and finalised. The FC are very keen to see the park continue and I will work towards making this happen. The park has great potential as really just needs finishing off – please only serious enquires only as this a massive undertaking a lifestyle choice with many responsibilities!
A big thanks to all you guys who have helped and supported the park over the years, it’s been great – lets hope it continues. Hopefully I’ll be able to ride the park in the summer as a punter for a change!Posted 4 years agochipsngravyMember
It’s not over for UKBP. Several parties have shown an interest in buying/leasing it.

I saw the pre-sale documentation (was helping a mate look at feasibility of the project and monetising it properly) and quite a few questions to be asked – to be viable and make proper money it would need a lot more investment than just the initial £20k seed capital (no services on site, generators not included, vehicles not included and uplift road likely to need surfacing), so if anyone’s going to make a proper go of it long term and make it profitable, we reckoned on around £120k initial investment.
Good luck to whoever goes with it!
