Temporary Closure Of Mountain Bike Skills Area

Llys-y-frân has commenced redevelopment in the area around the pump tracks to the north of the main car park. As a result, the majority of tracks* and the Duck, Duck Goose mountain bike trail are closed to the public.

The works are being undertaken to (1) redevelop the mountain bike skills area to create an exciting new section and (2) improve access to Llys-y-frân’s new campsite (currently under construction and due to launch in late spring).

The improved access road will run just inside the eastern boundary edge of the estate and run through to the new camping field to the north of the Activity Centre. The new section of cycleways will be constructed alongside the access road and will link up to existing routes.

Llys-y-frân apologises for any inconvenience to cyclists and mountain bikers for this disruption.

As soon as we have a definite re-opening date, we will update customers via the website.

* The tarmac sections of the pump track will remain open throughout.


How to enjoy the Pump Skills Area

Roll back, compressing your arms and legs to stay light on the frontside of features, and roll forwards extending your limbs to be heavy on the backside of features.

It’s all about the timing! On the corners, look round to your exit with bent arms and extend your legs to gain speed.

For your safety and enjoyment, please…

Always ride anticlockwise around the trail.

Always wear a helmet, arms and legs should be covered as a minimum but personal protective gear such as pads and gloves is recommended.

Safety-check your bike/equipment before riding. You can do this at our bike hub.

Ride within your ability and keep your bike under control.

Be aware of other users, especially those dropping in from different points.

This area is only for non-motorised riders.

Please do not walk, play or climb on it, there are plenty of other safe places to do this!
