Route information
Day One Ride
The Day One ride is the gravel option of the two races at this Festival, with the route consisting of 75% off-road trails and tracks and the other 25% on the road. Choose from the Long or Short route.
Day Two Ride
This route is slightly more forgiving compared to the gruelling first, since the route meanders down the Tweed Valley toward Cardronna before hitting the main climb of the day. Choose from the Long or Short route.
The GPX route will be sent to registered participants one week before the event.
There will be approximately 6 timed stages, which are accumulated in a GC format to determine the overall rankings. However, please note that this event is not a race. There are un-timed stages in-between the timed stages, allowing riders to sit back and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of this rural location.
