Coaching & Guiding


BikePark Wales is a perfect place for skills coaching, we have every kind of terrain, surface and obstacle you can think of and an efficient uplift service meaning you will spend maximum time working on your skills during each session delivered by our expert coaches.

Our skills sessions help to break down each skill into its key elements enabling you to improve your riding and understand how to improve. We use advanced techniques such as video analysis to help you to understand where and how improvements can be made. You can choose the course that suits you best and focuses on the key skills you wish to improve. Our courses are suitable for Intermediate through to expert standard riders, everyone can learn from a coaching session. 

All coaching courses run for a half day and include unlimited uplift for the part of the day during which you are not being coached as well as uplift during the session (excluding our Saturday Kids Clubs). You need to be 17 years old to attend coaching on your own and must be 14 years or older if accompanied by an adult (The accompanying adult must also be booked onto the same course). Private bookings for younger children can be arranged and we run kids coaches and camps specifically for younger riders. 

We strongly recommend you wear a full-face helmet for all our courses. Full face helmets are mandatory for the Drop Zone & Jumps Starter courses.

Half-day course times are as follows;

Morning - Please arrive at 9:00am for a 9.30am start.

One to One / Private Groups

Level: Bespoke

Whist we keep all our groups small (maximum of 6 riders per coach), sometimes it can help to have some one on one time. Working with a personal coach means the focus will be just on you, it allows you to progress at your own speed, meaning you will get much more out of your session. One to One courses cost £145pp and include half a day coaching. COVID-19 UPDATE: UNDER THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE WE WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO OFFER PRIVATE COACHING TO ONE HOUSEHOLD SO WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COACH MIXED HOUSEHOLD GROUPS. WE WILL AMEND THIS POLICY AS RULES CHANGE.
