Gritopia
Newby Court School Brae, Scotland, United Kingdom

Grit, gravel or whatever you call it want to try a cycling adventure into the lesser-known corners of the Tweed Valley? Everyone knows the Tweed Valley has fabulous roads jammed with stunning views and hardly any cars, and of course, we have a vast collection of world-class mountain bike trails spreading like veins through the hills and woodlands. But what lies between has been something of a secret pleasure countless miles of backcountry forest, dirt or drove roads taking the adventurous bicyclist to undiscovered corners of this beautiful land.

All you need is a spirit of adventure and a bike that can despatch the miles on a variety of surfaces, leaving the traffic far behind and often far below you.

Gritopia is a new event for adventure/gravel/backcountry, or whatever you want to call it, riders. With an event HQ in the TweedLove T On The Green event village, Gritopia will take you on a journey to many new places in the valley hinterland, with mile after mile of empty grit and gravel, and a few stretches of quiet tarmac linking it all up.

The course will be around 60km, all way-marked and youll also get a route map and feed station along the way. There will be some big climbs along the way lifting you to spectacular high roads and ancient trails.

Aimed at any bike rider whos up for an adventure, the event works as a first-time gravel event but will also have plenty of fun for the more experienced gravellist. You can do it on any suitable bike which means a mountain bike will be fine too, but a small-tired pure road bike will likely be a tad uncomfortable (and the gearing might be unhelpful in one or two places!).

Transcend Festival - Enjoyro

A fun and (mostly) fear-free experience for the enduro-curious, younger riders or just those with not enough time for a full-on enduro weekend. Or even if you just fancy a good day of enduro fun.

Welcome to the second year of our introductory-level enduro race, designed to provide a sweet way into the joy of enduro racing. This is Enjoyro!

Its also intended as a taster event for both adults and younger riders (age 12 and older*). Dont worry if you spot people taking part who looks like their very experienced enduro types chances are theyre accompanying one of the kids or a less experienced enduropal. Theyre not there to hunt you down (unless theyre your own off-spring perhaps).

Evans Cycles Lanark Road Sportive

Back fo another ride in glorious Scotland. We are based at Lanark Racecourse, which is now disused but was once the site of Britain's oldest horse race.

Lanark is just south of Glasgow and it's not long until you are into the typically beautiful countryside with rolling hills and a scenic vista. Due to the remoteness of some of the roads we are running slightly different route distances to our usual events with Fun, Medium and Long routes only. Our other Scottish events sell out way in advance so make sure you sign up nice and early to get your place.

What you need to know about Road Cycling Events

Discover UK and International Road Cycling events. Featuring Sportives, Gran Fondos and Charity Bike Rides in our 2018 Cycling Calendar. Cycling is a hugely popular sport but can sometimes seem a closely guarded secret, there’s a lot of jargon and kit but once you pop, you absolutely can’t stop. It’s a great weekend activity, go with friends and cruise round city parks or country lanes, you’ll be addicted in no time.

Different road cycling event types

We sort our cycling events by Short (0-50km), Medium (50-100km), Long (100-200km) and Ultra (200km+). Most of these are Sportives. Here are some cycling event names defined:

  • Gran Fondo — a mass participation cycling event at least 120km long. A large event with closed roads, usually chip timed. People travel all over Europe to compete in these events.
  • Century — a cycle of 100 miles (160.9 km) or more within 12 hours, usually as a club sponsored event. A large event with closed roads, people can get there PBs here. Usually chip timed.
  • Sportives — most of the cycling events on our site are sportives, these are the most popular endurance cycling events. They’re held all over the world and rarely exclude traffic. They’re more relaxed and whilst people do go for PBs it’s a much more convivial atmosphere than the more formal Gran Fondo races.
