The 10 best places to ride a mountain bike in Wales

Revolution Bike Park

Revolution Bike Park is situated in 110 acres of private woodland at the foot of the Snowdonia National Park. Uplifts run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday but are also available on other days if booked by a group. You can expect around 10-18 runs a day, which equates to a fairly whooping 4500m of descending in one day. There is parking, toilets and a small hut on site, but it’s always undergoing development so expect further facilities and tracks in future. As it stands now though it’s still a great venue with five tracks ranging from red to black. This place is definitely not aimed at beginners and is also home to the quarry line which has been made famous by Dan Atherton. A video of him riding it can be seen below.


Freeride – Red – This all-weather trail is packed with table tops, rollers, berms and kickers. An advanced trail, but everything is rollable.
Mainline – Black – The Mainline is a highly technical downhill track with lots of roots, exposed rock and slatey corners, and a plenty of line choice.
Ghetto Track – Black – The Ghetto Track is the most natural trail at the park. Steep, loamy and challenging it weaves its way to the bottom.
L1 – Black – L1 starts on the Mainline and branches off on the first fire road. It pretty much goes straight down the hill, super steep, technical and fun. It’s one more experienced riders, and one hell of a ride.
Ffar Side – Pro Line – This starts with big tabletops and berms and then turns into a tighter, steeper section with drops before dropping into a high speed flowing traverse across the hill before joining the Main Line at the last fire road. A helmet cam run of this track and Main Line can be seen below.
