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.
For 2019 both courses were re-planned to explore new trails within the Kielder and Wark Forest areas, with a few minor tweaks for 2021.
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.
