Cycling to Bike Park Wales

If you're heading to Bike Park Wales to ride the mountain bike trails, why not leave your car/van in the Roost and cycle up? You can ride to the visitor centre in around 17 minutes. It’s all off-road and you won't have to worry about parking or having a cheeky beer or two at the end of the day. And, on the way back to the Roost, it's all downhill!

Turn left onto the Taff Trail just in front of the pub (don't take the lane that runs up by the houses) and follow the trail for no more than 5 minutes before turning left into the woods when you've just passed under a bridge.

There is an alternate route which includes a footbridge and quite a few steps. Turn left at the pub but follow the lane by the houses and not the Taff Trail.

Also, we'd love to see your Roost pics on social media, tag @roostmerthyr:
