Our friends and supporters at are offering free passes to the first 50 Members who send us an email with the word ICEBIKE in the subject field. Please include your name and membership number too, and make sure you can attend on the day! 

Send to anarchy [at] rideastonhill [dot] co [dot] uk (and replace the ‘at’ and ‘dot’ to make an email address, obviously!)

Check out the official Madison press release:

As long-time supporters of Aston Hill, we at Madison thought it would be nice to offer up something special to all you Aston Hill members.

The yearly Madison internal trade show, iceBike* is a yearly occurrence where dealers and the press get to come along to our Milton Keynes distribution centre and see all the latest and great products from the likes of Saracen, Genesis, Giro, GoPro, Shimano and all the over brands that we distribute. This is always a strictly internal trade affair, but this year for the first time we are opening up our Press day on the afternoon of Thursday 23rd of February to Aston Hill members!

Not only will you get to see loads of shiny new kit and prototypes before anyone else, you’ll also be guests at the Madison Saracen team launch, be the first to see an exclusive 3D Chris Akrigg edit and be in the company of one of England’s finest exports, Steve Peat.

We’ve got 50 places to give away to the first 50 people to respond!


What’s goin’ on?


As the great Marvin Gaye asked: What’s goin’ on?

You want to be in the know? OK! Here’s a quick update on what’s happening on the Hill over the past few months.

Sorry all those that were planning to come, but the dig Sunday to be postponed. Due to frozen ground and potential snow we’re going to let you play on bikes instead!

Watch Facebook, the website and your emails for the next one. It’ll be soon - there’s loads to do!
