*New date: The Dirty Reiver has been postponed from its original date of 18 April due to the coronavirus outbreak and will now take place on 19 September 2020. Please see event website for further details.*

The Dirty Reiver 200 (200km), Dirty One Thirty (130km) and Dirty Sixty Fiver are off-road cycling challenges based on the Gravel Grinder format found predominantly in the mid west of America.

A new Dirt-E-Reiver category will be open to E-Bikes (EAPC Compliant)* .This category has all of feel of the Dirty Reiver with much less distance.

The Dirty Reiver routes will explore new trails and parts of the Kielder and Wark Forests in 2019.

Riders will traverse gravel forest access roads that service the vast areas of forest covering the border region of England and Scotland. The events will take riders through remote areas providing outstanding viewpoints across this spectacular part of the UK.

Due to the shared use of some of the course the Dirty Reiver events are NOT races. However, finishing times will be graded and these grades are detailed in finishing times on the event page.

The event is based at the Kielder Castle Forest Park Centre, Kielder, Hexham, Northumberland NE48 1ER.

This is a challenge not a race. Riders can choose from the Dirty Reiver (200km), the Dirty One Thirty (130km) or the Dirty Sixty Fiver (65km) distance events.

No riders under 16 years old will be accepted.
