In short, Grinduro is just what the name suggests: Gravel Road Race + Mountain Bike-Style Enduro = one long loop of pavement and dirt, where finishing times aren’t based on overall loop time, but four timed segments (each roughly five-to-seven minutes).
But Grinduro is not just a bike race. It’s a celebration of cycling with as much emphasis on the fun as the ride, with excellent food, an impressive display of art and incredible handmade bikes, live music, camping and a festival atmosphere.
YOU GET A LOT FOR YOUR MONEY!
Race entry is £150, but you’re getting a lot more than a bike race. Registration fees include the following:
EXCELLENT FOOD: Gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served on Saturday by Podium Catering as well as beer and other tasty beverages. Check out the full menu here.
PREMIUM SWAG: Grinduro participants will receive an amazing care package of limited edition goodies including:
TRANSPORTATION: To get to the central Grinduro Village you’ll need to take the CalMac Ferry from Ardrossan to Isle of Arran. We’ll have a secured car parking area and will assist with getting you, your gear as well as bike to the Grinduro Village. All included!
TENT CAMPING: We’re offering free camping to Grinduro racers in Lamlash. The camping will be in close enough proximity to the event village for ease of access but far enough away you can still enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. There will also be very limited option of camper vans if booked well in advance.
