Standard entry is priced £170 which includes three days camping (Thursday-Saturday), with the option to upgrade to hotel accommodation for a more luxurious experience if the forecast looks dicey. Riders can choose to set off in one of two start waves depending on whether they want to race or enjoy a more leisurely tour. Over three days you'll be treated to some of the UK's most spectacular gravel cycling in the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere.

The route is fully marked, with water points and medical support along the way. Chip timing and results will be provided, along with rider tracking to help you keep track of your friends' progress.

Back at event HQ there'll be live music and entertainment, a bar, secure bag drop, charging points for your phone and devices. Entry also includes event photography and finishers' medals to commemorate an epic weekend's riding.

The three stages run from Friday to Sunday, with a social ride down to the coast on the Thursday evening followed by a performance from the Blackbird Opera.

After stage one, Edinburgh-based adventure cycling legend Markus Stitz will host chats with Vedangi Kulkarni, the youngest woman to ride round the world and Rich and James Rothwell who completed the gruelling Highland Trail 550 when James was just 11 years old.

Then, on Saturday night there's live music from Dumfries-based band, The Dogz who'll keep you entertained playing classic tunes in their own raucous, raw rock 'n' roll style!
