Nant Yr Arian’s new skills park is OPEN!

The new skills area at Nant Yr Arian is now open to riders.

The area was opened on the weekend by Rachel Atherton with crowds of riders showing up to try it out. Rachel cut the ribbon, met the riders and enjoyed a lap of the new track.

Trail builders ‘TrailCraft’ started work in November and have been working through the winter to get it ready in time for the opening. Now complete, the skills park has two jumps lines and a pump track. The easier, blue jumps line is made up of rollers berms and tables whilst the harder, red line includes bigger tables and a step up, step down combo.
