Gatehouse of Fleet Gravel cycle

A Gravel cycle following a well-established route in the Galloway area of Southern Scotland.

Join us on this 60Km gravel cycle over and under viaducts and through scenic forests.

This is route number 06 from the popular "Gravel rides Scotland" book by Ed Shoote. We did route 07 (Big country route) in August 2021. Some of the pictures are from that event, but they give an idea of what to expect. Hoping to get through a few more of these rides in 2024.

Andrew is leading route 13 on Sunday 14th January, check it out here:

=====================================

The distance for this event may appear short/medium but cycling on rough ground can be very demanding. A reasonable level of fitness and confidence on tricky surfaces is essential.

This is a group cycle and nobody gets left behind.

A Strava route for the event is available to logged-in members.

Also this route uses much of the only UCI Gravel World Series race held in the UK (The Gralloch). A short video can be seen below:
