Hi,

Steve and I have been out on one or two street rides in Ashford. Not trials though, just jumping of stuff and riding steps. Ive nver tried trials as ive never had the proper bike. I don't think Ashford has much in the way of good stuff anyway?

Stour centre skate park, Victoria park... both seem to be local hang-outs... not sure what else there is out there as I stick to proper off-road or proper on-road...  would love to watch others pulling tricks though.

Vicky Park dont have much and the Stour Centre is full of kids on skates, board and scooters. Being over 30 I dont feel comfortable going there when its busy, especially with my low skill level. There are some fun steps around Kent House, the station and town centre.

Maidstone has a lot of good stuff as I used to sakte there when I was younger and ride BMX street there. This was at a time before every town had its own skate park. We built our own half pipe in Willesborough Rec and it was the most rickety, shoddly buld thing ever and the council ripped it down pretty quickly. We also has a jump box built in a empty wearhouse on the old railway work which lasted a bout 2 years before some idiot burnt it down!

and there are other spots in Ashford its just a case of finding them.

trials/street riding seems to have fallen in numbers since a few years ago  Sad
