First held in 2018, GRITFEST is a weekend-long festival of offroad cycling open to any kind of gravel, MTB, cross or adventure bike.

Featuring two days of incredible riding in mid Wales, riders will once again tackle two timed stages over mixed terrain.

Entries open 1 November 2022.

Gritfest might be a relatively new event (2023 is the fifth edition after the event was cancelled in 2020), but the team behind it are far from new. Organised by A Cycling, the team behind popular events such as Battle on the Beach, Tide 2 Tide and many others, they know the upper Towy Valley better than most and can ensure only the best tracks and best areas will be used. The venue is also one previously used for the first ever event the crew organised, Singlespeed UK Championships in 2010.

Riders can ensure that no stone will be left unturned to ensure everyone is grinning from ear to ear throughout the weekend.
