Book uplift online

The UK's only uplift for mountain bikers of all abilities

The primary aim of our mini bus uplift is to transport you and your bike to the top of the mountain safely, quickly and comfortably without causing any damage to your bike.

We have cut a new road to the summit of the mountain in order to provide you with a scenic, smooth and quick journey to the top. At weekends we run seven mini buses and trailers giving us the largest capacity of any year round uplift facility in the UK.

Please remember that children aged 16 years and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times (including on the trails and on the uplift), no adult, no ride, no refund! If a booking is made for a person under the age of 17 you must notify BikePark Wales as soon as you book, notifying us of who will be accompanying them. There are no refunds if you turn up alone.

Why not speed up your registration time and do it online before you get here. You can sign using your mouse or your touch sensitive screen by clicking here >

Please note fat bikes do not fit on the uplift trailers.

Please provide a valid mobile phone number when booking as we will need this to contact via mass text you if we have to close the park due to extreme weather conditions
