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 the feel of the Dirty Reiver with much less distance.
**The Dirty Reiver 2022 is now full. Please see event website to join the waiting list.**
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.
Event HQ will open on Friday 22 April with overnight camping available.
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.
