Event description

Description

Who fancies a day's riding at the UK’s first full scale mountain bike park in the heart of the South Wales valleys?

We're planning an overnighter to Bike Park Wales, a fantastic purpose built biking centre with an incredible network of trails for riders of all abilities. Whatsmore, they also operate a minibus uplift to the top of the trail runs, so you get plenty of downhill action.

The centre is appropriate for any level of rider and you can ride with your own bike and kit if you have it, hire just the protective gear if you have your own bike, or hire the bike and all the protective equipment.


Planned Itinerary:

Thursday 25th April

- Travel to Wales. We'll set up a whatsapp group in the lead in to help with the sharing of car journeys. There will also be a van going which can transport bikes to and from Brighton (see below).

- We'll be meeting up for dinner somewhere locally if you arrive in time and fancy that, with times and location to be shared in due course.

- People will be responsible for booking their own accommodation, although a couple of local suggestions can be found below.

Friday 26th April

- Meet up at the BPW centre at 8.45am for breakfast together before riding.

- First uplift leaves at 10 (and runs until 4pm) so if you want to be on the first one you'll need to be there ready to load at 9.50.

- Lunch together at the BPW base.

- Ride until 4pm

- Travel back (or stay on if you fancy of course!)
