Quote from The Times Newspaper

“One of the best mass- participation events I have ever had the pleasure of entering — and I’m comparing it to the marathons in London and New York as well as the Etape du Tour” – The Times 2021






The Course

The Dirty Reiver 200 (200km), Dirty One Thirty (130km) and the new Dirty Sixty Fiver (65km) are off road cycling challenges based on the Gravel Grinder format found predominantly in the mid west of America.

The ‘Sixty Fiver’ course will also be open to E-Bikes as the Dirt-E-Reiver! Please note E-Bikes will not be allowed on the longer distances.

In 2021 both courses were re-planned to explore new trails within the Kielder and Wark Forest areas, with a few minor tweaks for 2022.

Riders will traverse gravel forest access roads that service the vast areas of forest covering the border region of England and Scotland. The events will take riders through remote areas providing outstanding viewpoints across this spectacular part of the UK.
