Event Description

The Gravel Fondo is like no other event in the UK, with a beautiful gravel route, the chance to start with club members, friends and family with the choice of a Long Course or Short Course route. There will be prizes for the fastest lap for both Men and Women in the age groups U30, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70+.

The surfaces include hard packed gravel, loose chipping gravel, grass, dirt and sand. The routes are 100% off road and take in the beautiful and scenic Kings Forest. The tracks allow for bunch riding and overtaking, which makes the whole ride exciting from start to finish.

If you fancy taking your gravel riding to the next level and want to race against those in your Masters age group, take a look at Gravel Race.

The Long Course consists of 3 laps, totalling 78km and the Short Course is 52km with 2 laps. Each lap ends with a Pit Stop, with both food and mechanical support available.

We expect the Gravel Fondo to sell out very quickly, so register now to avoid disappointment and guarantee a place on the start line.
