The plan behind Surface 2 Air was to create a little piece of Whistler in the Home Counties. Fortunately we had our own Cannuck-wannabe – freshly returned from seasoning in Canada – and initial drawings for Surface 2 Air started to take shape. After a year of manual labour and several tonnes of surfacing material, Surface 2 Air was born!
Surface 2 Air is a deliberate step away from the Aston Hill trademark rooty, natural trails, and is the first all-weather track in the park. It is steep and swoopy: getting air is the main dish on the menu, and it’s served red hot. It really is the most fun you can have with your shorts on!
Surface 2 Air is classified as an Advanced bike park trail, suitable for riders aspiring to an elite level of technical ability. It incorporates everything from full-on downhill riding to optional big-air jumps.
