Forest of Dean Uplift Service Est. 2010

About Us

Over 10 years of uplifting experience ......

Established in 2010 Flyup offers customers the ultimate uplift and riding experience.

The concept came when Simon, a keen DH rider returned from a Mountain bike holiday in France. Like many people he had a busy life and got fed up of spending most of his precious riding day pushing up rather than riding.

Simon’s local trail was at the Forest of Dean Cycle Centre and with the outstanding riding available it seemed perfect for an uplift service. The Forestry Commission agreed and in May 2010 our first uplift took place.

FlyUp 417 Bike Park

We also own and run The 417 Bike Park which is the biggest privately owned mountain bike facility in England offering a variety of riding disciplines within one venue.
