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.

Bit of advance warning for you guys: DH4 will be closed shortly for a while for some much needed work.

As you’ve probably noticed, DH4 is in a pretty sorry state. It will be a project for the winter and various suggestions have been made regarding how to improve it, but we’d like your input too! If you have ideas it’d be great to hear them at the AGM.

Trail closed for maintenance

Aston Hill AGM

Members of Aston Hill!

It’s that time of year again when those behind the scenes at Aston Hill look to you for your help.

We really need to know if we are running things the way you like it. Is there something that you would like to change (and no, you’re not getting an uplift service)? Or have you got any fantastic ideas? Then this is the time to get them on the table.


Weather update for weekend 9th July

All mixed up, don’t know what to do…

It’s been a mixed week and the weekend is looking equally mixed. Except greasy patches in covered sections and after rain, but wear the wind and sun can get to the Hill it should dry pretty quickly. Good tyres, flats, armour and getting yo’ drift on is the order of the day.

It’s the Megavalanche this weekend with some Hillbilly raggers racing it - expect loads of GoPro headcam action appearing on Vimeo. There’s also a group of Hillbillies hitting up Morzine too - have a great one guys!

If it’s your first time riding at Aston Hill read the essentials and the frequently asked questions - they answer most enquiries people have about the park. It’s also worth bearing in mind that Aston Hill becomes a far more technical venue in the wet!
