The Panaracer Dirty Reiver was the UK’s first Gravel Grinder in the style of the classic US events. It continues to set the scene for gravel riding in the UK and is the biggest of its kind in Europe!

Set in the huge Forestry England managed land around Kielder Water and Wark Forest the Dirty Reiver has everything you could wish for in an event of this kind.

The 2ookm option is one continuous loop using the forest access roads that cross the area. The riding is fast going on well surfaced tracks with a real sense of being ‘out there’ on an adventure.

There are 130km and 65km options for those new to the scene and the event Gravel Expo Village, hosted by our sponsors, is a great opportunity to explore everything about gravel.

The event attracts riders from around the globe, including many ex-pro’s from both road and mountain bike teams. Make sure that you book early though as the event sells pout in a few hours.

The Scott Frontier 300 is all about the adventure as you cross from the West to East coast of the UK. Starting near to Dalbeattie in Southern Scotland and finishing at Druridge Bay on the east, the route takes in 300km of forest trails and quiet cycle routes.

Linking together 10 iconic forests across the borderlands between England and Scotland the route is a 50/50 split between on and off road. The terrain is perfect for gravel bikes, but can be ridden on a hardtail.

Choose between a single day crossing or a 2 day bike pack, both supported with shuttle options and feed stations along the way.
