Professional mountain biker Dan Atherton and the Dyfi Bike Park crew are delighted to announce that they are now accepting bookings through their new website for four of their most exhilarating race tracks.

For the last four years Dan and his dig crew have worked tirelessly to create some of the most diverse tracks imaginable set in 650 acres of estate forest.

They’ll initially be offering four black trails; 50 hits, Original DH, Race Track and Slab Track.

The park’s uplift will be serviced by a fleet of landrovers, with the uplift to ride-time ratio a particular highlight; an 11 minute uplift earns you at least 5 minutes descent – at race pace!

My whole life I’ve been searching for that perfect mix of maximum elevation with long descents and really varied terrain; the land here falls from a 666m peak at Tarren y Gesail almost to sea level, on the South side of the mountain we have mellow gradients and amazing dirt, perfect for our jumpline “50 Hits” and on the North, slabs of bedrock, roots and rocks create the perfect natural terrain for the downhill tracks...... We’ve only scratched the surface, the start ramps are only two-thirds of the way up the hill right now so there’s plenty of room for more."

Dyfi Bike Park is set in the Esgair Forest, three miles from Machynlleth
