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.
