Revolution Bike Park

Revolution Bike Park is a downhill MTB lovers dream – an incredible 110 acres of private woodland and quarry with a massive 300m vertical drop.

When you consider that Revolution is the Atherton Family’s local course of choice, it’s safe to say that the James and his crew have created something seriously special in North Wales.

With celebrity riders and amazing park comes loads of media coverage and in the past 6 months alone, Revolution has been all over screens and on the pages of MTB magazines all over the world.

If you haven’t ridden there yet, seriously….what are you waiting for?

MTB, Ski Touring

Greg Watts

A lover of the mountains from an early age, Greg spent his teenage years constantly longing for the next family holiday to North Wales, the Lakes, or the Alps where he’d revel in hiking, climbing, skiing and mountain biking.

Fast forward several years and unsurprisingly Greg has carved out a lifestyle that complements his passions and now he spends as much time in the mountains as is humanely possible: “Whether its ski touring in the depths of winter, mountain biking in far flung places or getting to remote destinations on my motorcycle, mountain time beats desk time, every time!”

His dedication to his passions have meant that he’s made some influential friends along the way. Regularly travelling and riding with renowned action sports photographer Dan Milner, Greg has modelled bikes and clothing, featured in calendars and magazines, and even scored a couple of front covers with UK magazines ‘What Mountain Bike’ and ‘Singletrack’.
