Information update

Please note that from the 1st March 2015 day passes sold on site for entry to the Aston Hill Bike Park  no longer come with third party insurance (previously offered by CTC).

Annual memberships and day passes will continue to be sold with third party insurance if purchased online through the CTC website.

Can you dig it?

The waiting is over, Dig Days are back on the menu!

Sunday 7th December 10:00 Aston Hill is the place to be, we have big plans for next year but before we start on them there are a few repairs that need doing. Come along on the 7th and lend a hand and get an insight into the future.

As usual non members who dig in the morning get to ride for free in the afternoon. We will bring the BBQ all you need to bring is the willingness to help and suitable tools if you have them e.g. Mattock, shovel etc.

Tell your friends in fact tell anyone, we look forward to seeing old faces and new.

Got wood?

Hey guys

Just a heads up that the Forestry are removing a few dead wood tomorrow (Thursday), the Hill will be open as usual but please look out for Rangers in Hi-Viz and at times certain sections may be closed for a bit whilst the work is being carried out.

Many thanks!

Thanks!

What an amazing race.

The weather played ball and racers were treated to dry and dusty conditions on the mash-up course which featured off-camber links between regular Aston Hill trails; it was even overheard as being described as “the best Aston Hill track, ever”. Praise indeed!

Rather than write a report (especially as the full results are on Gravity Project and Roots and Rain), feast your eyes on the video and pictures below – they tell a far better story. There’s also shots on the Aston Hill Flickr group – feel free to add more!

A huge shout must be given to Gravity Project, Quality Catering, Vintage VW Smoothies and the hardworking medics, for keeping people timed, fed, watered and safe.

A massive hats off also needs to go to the race backbone: the marshals. They did a sterling job at an incredibly busy race. Thank you very much guys!

All that remains is to say a massive, massive thank you to the race sponsors, who provided amazing support and prizes:

Racing will return next March. Watch this space!
