    best bike parks in UK ?

    Hi!
    I'm moving to UK for one year, and i'm searching info about bike parks.
    I see there are plenty of them
    The Best Mountain Bike Trails - iBikeRide

    but which ones (and where) are best for FR/DH riding (with shuttling) ?
    I see a lot of mountains in the upper Wales, but are they accessible ?

    Regards,
    Lucas

    Wales has a large number of trail - Bikepark Wales is one to look at. Also Afan, And Cwmcarn. There's others, but this are all within a 1hr (approx) drive of Bristol. Or live in Cardiff - they're very friendly :-)

    I'd say Wales has the most to offer.

    I live not far from Manchester.

    Round that way you have Llandegla - North Wales
    Gisburn - Lancs
    Farmer Johns - Manchester way
    Cannock - Birmingham way

    There are many many more places but & also some amazing rides in the Peak District.

    Go to singletrackworld.com and pose the question there. British mountain biking website.
    South Wales may well be your best bet for density of riding. Have a look at the 7 Stanes area of Southern Scotland as well. Lots of riding there.
    The UK is so small that you can travel around fairly easily and people do go away for weekends etc.
