Aston Hill Bike Park is a mountain bike venue situated just outside Wendover in the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Beauty.The park features five graded downhill (DH) runs, a two-part cross country (XC) loop, a pump track and a 4X track.
Aston Hill is a great venue for riders of all ages and abilities with something to challenge everyone – both cross-country and downhill beginner riders can improve here very quickly using the lower graded runs and the top section of the XC loop – but the chalk and clay soil base make it more suited to competent riders during the winter months.
In 2008 Aston reopened its gates as a fresh new partnership between the Aston Hill Committee, the CTC and the Forestry Commission. The CTC have since left the partnership and as of 2015 Aston Hill has been run jointly by the volunteer Committee and Forestry Commission.
It costs £7 for a daypass to ride at Aston Hill which you can buy from ticket machine in the car park or a Forestry Commission ranger, or £6 pre-booked from http://www.ctc.org.uk/day-pass/application/AST.
Please note that the ticket machines do not give change.
Parking is onsite with room for approximately 60 cars. Further parking is available in the Wendover Woods car park.
There are several local bike shops: check out the Facilities page for more information.
Accommodation, food and drink is not available on-site: the nearest towns with facilities are Wendover, Aston Clinton and Tring. While all three have B&Bs, Wendover and Tring have a greater variety of eateries and places to stay. The very good Café in the Woods is over the road in Wendover Woods and provides a warm welcome whilst serving coffee, tea, hot and cold sandwiches, and cake.

Take everything home. The only thing you should be leaving is tracks in the dirt and dust in the air from your EPIC shredding, dude.
Be realistic about your – and your bike’s – limits.
Show a bit of respect to the trails and those that build them – avoiding unnecessary skidding.
There is a lot of wildlife in the Park that spooks easily.
Join the digging crew and learn to do it properly!
