BikePark Wales

BikePark Wales are delighted to announce that construction of their first of a kind bike park facility at Gethin Woods is due to begin in January 2013.

BikePark Wales aims to be the UK’s premier mountain bike destination with trails to suit all abilities and all types of mountain biking and will be the UK’s first large commercial bike park.

BikePark Wales is part of the Cognation project that is investing in mountain biking throughout South Wales. The Cognation partnership is made up of Neath Port Talbot CBC, Merthyr Tydfil CBC, Caerphilly CBC and Forestry Commission Wales.

The project is part-funded by the EU’s Convergence European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government with match funding coming from the Welsh Assembly Government and partner organisations.

Planning for the park began in 2008 when the BikePark Wales team realised that the UK and South Wales in particular was desperately in need of a facility of this kind to take the sport to the next level. Fortunately both Forestry Commission Wales and Merthyr Tydfil CBC shared this vision and under the Cognation umbrella they have provided fantastic support to make this project possible.
