Mountain Biking at Aston Hill in Wendover Woods

April 22, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I spent a great few hours watching brave (mad?) guys and girls throwing themselves down the black run at Aston Hill bike park in Wendover Woods in the Chiltern Hills last Sunday.  I was amazed at the speed that they attacked the turns and jumps, they seem completely fearless.  In a past life I have to admit that I was mad keen on mountain biking, although my Orange P7 and Pace forks are now considered 'classic', and although I loved the single track and darting between the trees I must admit that I would never have the nerve to do what these downhill maestros do with such apparent ease.

It's a great photo opportunity, if you get a chance give it a go.  Some of the competitors have time to put on a show for the photographers on their way down, I think they liked the attention in I'm honest.  Get up close and personal, dial in a bit of flash and drag the shutter.  

Still I was mighty impressed, looking forward to the next race.  If you are into mountain biking and would like some shots like this get in contact.
