Following Bikepark Wales’ move from a while back, Black Mountains Cycle Centre have upped their entrance fee for e-bikes to twelve pounds.
It’s certainly causing a storm on social media already, something Bikepark Wales experienced when they announced a similar price increase for e-bikes.
BMCC state that the increased charge is due to the increased number of runs that e-bike riders can bang out increases the need for trail maintenance.
There’s plenty of arguments for and against this increase on BMCC’s Facebook page.
What do you think? Should bike parks be charging e-bikes riders more? Is it just a way of making up lost income from uplifts?
