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 any bike with a tyre wider then 2.75" will not fit onto our 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

"Thanks BPW for an amazing two days riding. This was my 12 year old son's first experience of a purpose built venue and he was buzzing the whole time. From booking to hiring bikes the whole set up puts you at ease, and nothing is too much for all the staff to make your experience a memorable one. The trails were perfect and as Aaron said, we'll be back very soon! Make the journey people you will love it."
