Dirty Reiver

WHAT IS THE DIRTY REIVER?

The Dirty Reiver is a 200 km off road cycling challenge based on the Gravel Grinder format found predominantly in the mid west of America.
Riders will traverse gravel forest access roads that service the vast areas of forest covering the border region of England and Scotland.
The event will take riders through remote areas providing outstanding viewpoints across this spectacular part of the UK.

Due to the shared use of some of the course the Dirty Reiver is NOT a race.  However, finishing times will be graded based upon the first finisher and these grades are detailed in finishing times on the event page.

Michigan Mountain Mayhem “Gravel Grinder”

The Gravel Grinder is a gravel road race like nothing you can imagine.

It is limited to 2000 riders.

The Gravel Grinder is essentially three races in one. The Easy 18 mile race is flat and easy, a great race for beginners or even the kids in the family. The Fast 40 mile race is a gravel race best suited for Cross bikes. The seasonal roads have been removed for this route. Expect lots of fast gravel mixed with some tough climbs. The Sadistic 60 mile race is for the person who wants a true challenge. You get five monster climbs, lots of fast gravel roads, multiple sections of tough seasonal roads which have sand, mud and rocks and also a white knuckle descent. Whatever bike/tire you choose it will be the wrong one at some point. This route will test your mental sanity.

Monday Motivation: Open Range

<Back to News Home   Monday Motivation: Open Range: Riding in any area that is “open range” for cattle, or wildlife, is an oddity for most of us. The nation, for the most part, where “civilization” is found, is cordoned off, developed, “owned”, and maybe lacks a feeling of being alone in the great big […]
