That’s why they make shoes that improve ride experiences across the board, driven by a desire to spread the enjoyment of cycling to as many people as possible.

ZIPP join the line-up for 2022!

So pleased to have ZIPP joining us for the Dirty Reiver in 2022. Bringing their legendary range of wheels and cockpit components to the Expo Village.

Look out for their new purpose built gravel wheelset, the 101 XPLR.   Smoother, easy to set-up and with the ability to run lower pressures these wheels will keep you fresher for the long road ahead.

Keep an eye out for them on course this Spring!






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.
