Facilities C'est facile!

Parking

Parking is onsite with room for approximately 60 cars, paid using the ticket machine onsite, which also covers the day pass for one rider. Further parking is available in the Wendover Woods car park.

Accommodation, food and drink

The nearest towns 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. For the nighthawks among you, it’s worth noting that several pubs in Wendover and Tring have late opening, but the nearest clubs are in Aylesbury with most locals choosing to take the 40 minute train ride into central London.

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.

If you’re partial to your ale, it’s worth noting that there are several very good micro breweries in the area, in particular Tring Brewery and the Chiltern Brewery. A lot of tucked-away local pubs carry beer by at least one of these and they’re well worth a snifter. Using Aston Hill as a base, it’s very easy to put together a good XC route using the local rights of way to visit a few.

Bike shops

Aston Hill is served by several good bike shops:

  • Lovelo Cycleworks in Berkhamstead offers a 12.5% discount to Aston Hill members and is run by Mark who is a top bloke and dab hand at clearing up baby dribble.
  • Mountain Mania in Tring will give your bike workshop priority at the weekend and offer a 10% discount to Aston Hill members.
  • Buckingham Bikes in Aylesbury.
  • Dees Cycles in Amersham.
  • Cycle Care in High Wycombe.
When nature calls...

There is a portaloo on site in the car park. Better toilet facilities are available in Wendover Woods, a short walk or bike ride away.
