Welcome to Gritopia our grit, gravel (or whatever you want to call it) adventure.


Gritopia will take you on a journey to many new places in the valley hinterland, leaving the traffic far behind and often far below you. Expect mile after mile of empty grit and gravel with a few stretches of quiet tarmac linking it all up.

There will be two course lengths:

  • The Long One | approx. 75km
  • The Short(er) One | approx. 45km

All you need to do is pick one of them… you can do this nearer the time – no need to decide just yet.

Any suitable bike will do. A dedicated gravel bike is perfect but a mountain bike will be fine too. We do however recommend leaving the road bikes at home, they’ll be a tad uncomfortable and the gearing might by unhelpful in places!
