  • The Dirty Reiver 200 (200km), Dirty One Thirty (130km) and Dirty Sixty Fiver are off-road cycling challenges based on the Gravel Grinder format found predominantly in the mid west of America.

    A new Dirt-E-Reiver category will be open to E-Bikes (EAPC Compliant)*. This category has all of feel of the Dirty Reiver with much less distance.

    The Dirty Reiver routes will explore new trails and parts of the Kielder and Wark Forests in 2019.

    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.

    Due to the shared use of some of the course the Dirty Reiver events are NOT races. However, finishing times will be graded and these grades are detailed in finishing times on the event page.

    The event is based at the Kielder Castle Forest Park Centre, Kielder, Hexham, Northumberland NE48 1ER

    This is a challenge not a race. Riders can choose from the Dirty Reiver (200km), the Dirty One Thirty (130km) or the Dirty Sixty Fiver (65km) distance events.

    No riders under 16 years old will be accepted.

    Anyone else going to this? I did it last year & it was great, so with the advent of a new route, I'm excited to do it again!

    Got at least two other friends coming up too (one who will be doing it single speed again), & am working on convincing a few others. We'll be riding under the banner of #hotboysoflsf (Leeds Singlespeed/Fixed Gear).

    The weather we had last year was pretty much perfect, I hope it's as good this next year, otherwise it might be a fair bit harder!

  • I did it last year but I just cannot believe that I will be as lucky with the weather again so I am ooot.

    If anyone is thinking of doing it though, it is a cracking event in a marvelous location. You will love it.

  • Yeah, I am thinking that too. I even got a little sunburnt this year! Then that massive thunderstorm in the evening - pretty amazing (except for trying to sleep in a tent).

    I've justified it that if it's miserable weather, I can treat it as a chance to prove my own grit further to myself. Something along those lines anyway.

  • I'm signed up.

    Doing it fixed.

  • Aw yes! You going to be doing it on your new fixed gear off road shredder? Been following your thread in CP with interest!

  • That’s the plan!
