King’s Cup Gravel Festival postponed to 2021

We’ve worked tirelessly over the past months to develop and deliver an exciting and COVID secure gravel event amidst these unprecedented times. We had been hoping to welcome you all to the King’s Forest in a months time. Unfortunately, we must announce that due to the latest pandemic development and new regulations introduced by the government this week, it is no longer possible to host the festival. We do not anticipate an improvement of the situation in the final months of the year and are therefore postponing the inaugural King’s Cup Gravel Festival and British Gravel Championships to 2021.

When is the next King’s Cup Gravel Festival?
We are looking forward to hosting the event back in its original late September slot in 2021. The King’s Cup Gravel Festival and British Gravel Championships will take place from September 24th to 26th, 2021

What happens with pre-registrations?
If you have pre-registered for the 2020 event this pre-registration will carry over and remain valid for the 2021 King’s Cup Gravel Festival. We’ll be in touch when entries for 2021 open. 

I didn’t pre-register for 2020, can I already pre-register for 2021?
Yes! We are now accepting pre-registrations for the 2021 event. There are a limited number of exclusive discounted entries remaining. So don’t miss out and pre-register now!



Route Launch

Just over one month out from the King’s Cup Gravel Festival and the inaugural British Gravel Championships we are excited the reveal the routes that await riders heading to the King’s Forest Suffolk in late October.


New date for the King’s Cup Gravel Festival 2020

The King’s Cup Gravel Festival 2020 has been rescheduled to October 23-25, 2020. Unfortunately, the current pandemic development, government guidance and advice from authorities has made the original event date unfeasible. We have made the appropriate arrangements and look forward to welcoming you to the King’s Forest, Suffolk in late October.

Bike Set Up

Tubeless Tyre Set Up

Setting up your tyres tubeless is a good idea when riding on gravel and means you can go further without having to stop and change the inner tube
