MBUK's best BikePark Wales trails – video
We pick our top five BikePark Wales trails so you know which ones to ride first!
Want to know which trails you need to ride at BikePark Wales? We've racked our map-like brains to draw up a shortlist of five must-ride tracks that give you the most bang for your buck! The next time you visit BikePark Wales make a beeline for these runs...
A BPW classic – with more jumps and turns than you can shake a stick at, the red plus graded trail isn't for the faint of heart.
Commonly mistaken to mean microwave in Welsh, the name Popty Ping is inspired by the blue plus graded trail's flowy and jumpy line.
Another red-graded wonder, Surfin' Bird isn't your typical bike park trail.
If you're after speed and and flow, Terry's Belly is the one for you. It's even long enough to give you arm pump and we recommend working up to a full run!
Gnarly, fast and bloody good fun. Hotstepper is just as long as Terry's Belly but much harder, so you'd better be on your toes!
Keep your eyes peeled for issue 349 of MBUK, out on the 7th of November, for our exclusive review on BikePark Wales' brand new trail Root Manoeuvres.

Alex Evans is BikeRadar’s senior mountain bike technical editor. He started racing downhill at the tender age of 11 before going on to compete across Europe. Alex moved to Morzine in the French Alps at 19 to pursue a career as a bike bum and clocked up an enormous amount of riding. Hitting those famous tracks day in, day out for eight years, he broke more bikes than he can remember. Alex then moved back to the UK and put his vast knowledge of mountain biking to good use by landing a job working for MBUK magazine as features editor. Since working for MBUK, Alex’s focus has moved to bike tech. He’s one of BikeRadar’s lead testers and knows how to push bikes and products to the limit, searching out the equipment that represents the best value for money. Alex is also a dedicated eMTB rider, and still dabbles in racing of a sort, doing his best to top the Strava leaderboard on the steepest, gnarliest and twistiest trails the Tweed Valley has to offer – just for fun, of course. Alex is also a regular on the BikeRadar YouTube channel and BikeRadar podcast.
