Aston Hill Bike Park, Buckinghamshire

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 4X track and a two-part cross-country (XC) loop: it is a great venue for riders of all ages and abilities with something to challenge everyone, but is more suited to competent riders during the winter months.


Regulations and standards affect the specifications of bikes (and other configurations of pedal cycles) that can be sold and used on the roads.
