The Dirty Reiver
The Dirty Reiver (200km), Dirty One Thirty (130km) and the Dirty Sixty Fiver (65km) are off road cycling challenges based on the Gravel Grinder format found predominantly in America.
The ‘Sixty Fiver’ course will also be open to E-Bikes as the Dirt-E-Reiver!
2024 courses will be re-planned to explore new parts of Kielder and Wark Forests. If you have ridden before then look forward to something new this year.
Riders will traverse 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.
Find out why Kielder and the Dirty Reiver is ‘the’ go to event for gravel in the UK.
Announcing Le Col
Le Col got its first official sponsor outing this week on Kielder Gravel, during one of our pre event recce rides. Their Pro Aqua Zero Long Sleeve Jersey gets a huge thumbs up from the team at Focal Events. Close fitting, warm and able to shed moisture, it ticks all on the Gravel Riders wish list.
We paired with the Sport Cargo Thermal Bib Short for perhaps the ultimate Dirty Reiver combo.
With all options available in mens and women’s there is no reason not to be fully prepared for this ‘all seasons’ in a day event!
Ride Flanders will be bringing a taste of Belgian cycling to this years Dirty Reiver.
Flanders hosts many classic cycle events as well as the home to many well known riders. With this rich cycling heritage they are sure to know a thing or two about adding to the atmosphere.
With next years Gravel World Championships in Halle-Leuven these guys are very well placed to advise on travel, accommodation and visits across the wider area.
We are proud to announce that Camelbak will be joining us as a presenting partner for 2024.
A household name when it comes to bags, vests and hydration we are looking forward to seeing what they have in store for the Gravel Scene.
With more riders looking to go that bit longer between stops, or just carry that extra layer or snack Camelback are sure to have you covered.
