New red trail HotStepper opens Wednesday 30th
BikePark Wales opens HotStepper new red trail
Back in the Autumn of 2015 we asked riders at BikePark Wales what kind of trail they wanted us to build next. It was pretty clear from what we heard that a red trail needed to be the next addition. We got some great feedback and some really detailed input as to the kind of features, textures and shapes people wanted to ride on this new trail. We put our heads together and along with Back-On-Track, a line was plotted and a concept created. HotStepper was born!
An extremely challenging three-month build period that left trail crew members knee deep in mud for weeks on end was completed during March 2016. The trail has been allowed to bed in and settle and we are nearly ready to pop the cork! The team have done an incredible job, creating a red trail that mixes rock drops, amazing technical slab features, a hand-cut rooty section, jumps and flowing turns. Hot-Stepper is the longest red trail in the park at 1.6KM and can be accessed via Terry’s Belly.

HotStepper will be open to the public to ride from Wednesday 30th March 2016
