The plan behind Surface to Air was to create a little piece of Whistler in the home counties. Fortunately we had our own Cannuck-wannabe – freshly returned from seasoning and trail-building in Canada – to inspire us, and after some initial napkin sketches, Surface to Air started to take shape.

A year of manual earth moving and several tonnes of surfacing material later, there was an amazing new trail at Aston Hill – Surface to Air had been born.

Moving away from the Hill’s trademark steep, rooty, natural trails, Surface to Air is the first all-weather track on the Hill; it takes the cutting edge of global freeride mountain biking and brings it to the trail-hungry rippers of the home counties.

Surface to Air is steep, fast and fun; 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.

Is this the trail for you?

Surface to Air is suitable for riders aspiring to an elite level of technical ability and incorporates everything from full on downhill riding to optional big-air jumps.
