Rheola is located in the picturesque vale of Neath about 20 minutes drive North from the M4. The venue is used for the Halo British Downhill Championship series and the Welsh Downhill Championships. This trail is ideally suited to events or organised uplift days due to the sheer distance you have to push your bike up to reach the top of the trail. We’re talking well over an hour of steep forest roads which would be difficult to cycle up even on a cross country bike, let alone a downhill machine.
