Aston Hill video channel

Comments Off   Posted by Aston Hillbilly |  Category:News, Trails, Video

Alex over at D-Line dropped us a note the other day to let us know that has a channel for Aston Hill on in. This is really cool - nearly all the video footage taken at the Hill is now in one place! It’s at and has coverage of most runs and the last two races.

Got a great vid that you’d like to see to featured? Drop Alex a line here.

Park smart!

Unfortunately two cars were broken into on the Hill on 27/04/10.

Just a quick reminder to hide expensive kit when riding there during the week. Small, easy to sell things are what these scum prefer - satnavs, mp3 players, cameras - so either take them with you or hide them somewhere other than the glovebox. Part of the beauty of Aston Hill is, in the crowded south east, it’s pretty secluded. Consequently when it’s not busy - like during the week - there aren’t too many people around to keep an eye on things.

First day of summer?

Comments Off   Posted by Neil |  Category:Trails, Weather and conditions

Super-buff at the Hill; conditions are pretty near to perfect with dry (but not super dusty) trails, warm enough to ride in short sleeves (but cool enough to not make you drip) and no plants grabbing for your bars.

Start of the summer? Here’s hoping.

In between being a new dad and setting up, Alex from D-Line has somehow found time to do two days of filming at the Black Run race, early last month.
