We started Cwmdown back in the Summer of 2006, out of a passion for mountain biking, but also the desire to offer something that wasn't really available at the time. We wanted to offer a high quality uplift service, where you can relax on the way up, but also not have to worry that we are going to smash the crap out of your bike. A service for everyone, not just downhillers, but also the average everyday rider who simply wants a lift to the top of the mountain. Whether you are just really lazy, or fancy smashing out run after run on the XC course and DH track, this uplift is perfect for you. It's also a pretty good place to meet like minded riders.
On an average day each bus would normally do around 12 lifts with a turnaround of approx 30-35 minutes. Although some riders are happy to do 12 runs of the DH Course, most are ready to go home after about 9-10 runs. During the dark winter months we won't be able to do as many runs because it gets dark earlier, but we do reduce the total number of riders as the days get shorter.
We are open 5 days a week, from Wednesday through to Sunday throughout the year, including the Monday Bank Holidays.
