What about the uplift?

If you haven’t pre-booked the uplift don’t worry. The park will be open to customers as normal however we have reduced the numbers of tickets sold as well as adding more busses over the weekend. This means that we will have a larger capacity than normal for PAYG customers.

To use the uplift service simply make your way to the pickup point and pay £4 per single uplift or purchase a multi ride card at reception. 

If you don't wish to use the uplift service you can pedal to the top via the Beast of Burden. The current record is 15 laps! 

Coaching

Due to group size restrictions, spaces for coaching are limited and need to be booked separately to your event ticket.

For those who have pre booked a pumping masterclass session, please meet at the pumptack before your session starts. For those who have booked onto a coaching session with Katy or a BPW sessions please make your way to the coaching meeting flag.

If you haven't had a chance to book a coaching session yet we have lots of BPW coaching sessions available

Group rides

Tahnee,Veronique and Katy will be leading a group rides throughout the weekend. The group rides aren’t a race, so don’t feel like you need to be a world cup racer to join in. They are a fantastic opportunity to meet new riding friends, ask the pro riders questions and enjoy the amazing trails we have at the park!.

Each ride will use the Beast of Burden to climb to the top and then will descend on a mixture of blue and red trails (depending on the group).

A new addition for this year is our Yoga & strength, posture and balance sessions. Sessions will be held inside the yurt. As numbers inside the yurt are limited, tickets need to be pre booked separately via our website.
