New partnership with Aston Hill Bike Park
Over the past month we have been back in the UK visiting many bike parks and setting up some great new partnerships. Our latest partnership is with the guys at Aston Hill Bike Park, The team from Aston Hill came to visit us out here in Morzine over the summer and it looks like they are set to visit Morzine many times again.
If Aston Hill is a new venue for you here is some info below and be sure to go and check it out soon and support UK trail centres.
- Aston Hill Bike Park is a mountain bike venue situated just outside Wendover in Buckinghamshire, on one of the steeper slopes within the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty.
- The park features five graded downhill (DH) runs, a 4X track and a two-part cross-country (XC) loop. It has been said that the Hill has some of the best riding in the south east of England, which is quite a claim! Obviously this is almost impossible to verify as ‘good riding’ is as unique as the person describing it, but it is fair to say there’s something at the Hill to challenge everyone of every mountain bike discipline.*
- Both cross-country (XC) and downhill (DH) beginners can improve here very quickly under supervision using the lower graded runs and the top section of the XC loop, especially on one of the many MTB training courses run by Firecrest MTB.
- Aston Hill is very lucky to have some highly experienced trail designers and builders and the tracks are in a constant state of evolution to maintain a heady mix of old-school naturally technical and more contemporary ‘flow’-based riding. Since the committee took over in 2008 every trail has been tuned to add interest and reduce permanent damage to the Hill, while adhering to Forestry Commission and IMBA guidelines.
- Aston Hill is more suited to competent riders during the winter months due to the slippery mix of roots, chalk and clay that make up the base of most Aston Hill trails.
