Bike Park Pro
WorldBikeParks.com is the online guide to the best mountain bike destinations in the world. Our passion and focus is bike parks; we would like to include every trail on the face of the earth, but the task at hand is big enough. So we are building a comprehensive and detailed database of every bike park facility across the globe. Yeah, we are going to make it happen! Please join us and help spread the word about bike parks in your area and beyond. There’s a platform for independent rider reviews, ‘by riders, for riders’ and we’re building the biggest and coolest online catalogue of Rider Cam trail videos, so you can check out any trail at any bike park before you actually go ride it!
So how exactly do you define a ‘bike park’? It’s not based only on lift access, as many bike parks don’t have or even need an uplift service. There is one crucial factor that we suggest a location must have to warrant the bike park name, and that is:
...dedicated and maintained trails for mountain bike use ONLY.
After all, it’s surely the trails that count the most, so this is what we use as our criteria. And we’ve gone one step further, to define distinct bike park types, just so we’re all on the same page…
GRAVITY / The classic gravity bike park, usually developed around the infrastructure of a ski resort.
eg. Whistler Bike Park, Canada.
TRAIL CENTER / Maintained mountain bike trail networks, with or without upload capability.
eg. Coed Llandegla, U.K.
URBAN / Locations in or around towns and cities, normally specializing in technical trails and jumps.
eg. Valmont Bike Park, USA.
INDOOR / Technical trails and jumps for mountain bikes, but under a roof obviously!
eg. Rays Indoor Bike Park, USA.
Obviously this is a big task and there’s a lot to do, but our passion for riding is what drives us each and every day! We engage directly with the bike parks themselves to make sure the content and info is accurate and as up to date as possible, and we scour the web, trails, and mountain bike events in search of the latest bike park news and features. But with such a large site and over 200 bike parks listed (with more on the way!) you can hopefully appreciate the scale of the task. If you see an error, or missing information (and we know there are gaps) please don’t go nuts (forgive us). We’d be super grateful if you could drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. We’ll fix it pronto.
We have a lot of plans; ultimately we want to build the best bike park website in the world for the mountain bike community! So if you have any suggestions or requests for how to make the website better and improve the user experience then get in touch.

COMBINED POSTAGE FOR THE PURCHASE OF SEVERAL ITEMS
Our internal shipping charge calculator will tell you the cost of your postage prior to your checkout. In most cases buying more than 1 item will result in cost savings to you.
- Small items up to 500g cost around $7 postage. Depending on the weight and size you will get 2 sometimes 3 small items posted for this amount.
- Most larger items post for about $12 and you will generally be able to add 1-3 small items at no extra charge
- Once you purchase products over 3 kg in weight there is generally, only a small amount of extra postage charged
COMBINED SHIPPING CHARGES FOR BULKY ITEMS
You can add smaller items together with bulky items and there will generally be no or a small added postage cost. Ordering items such as 2 bike cases may not result in any savings due to their volume. Ordering mid-size items like two fluid trainers together will result in very good savings though. You will get your quote for shipping costs before you checkout.
