DorsetGravelDash2016From the Promoter:

  • 100 miles in one day – A one stage, one day, largely off-road 100 mile dash across the county and back.
  • Mixed and very varied terrain.
  • Use any bike you want (no electric bikes).
  • Includes a cool t-shirt.
  • Starts Sunday 28th May 2016, at the Red Lion Swanage.
  • Ends 100 miles later at same location.
  • Prizes and trophies galore.
  • Routes supplied via GPX file around one month before the event. Plug it into your GPS, or mark up your OS map.
  • There will be minimal markers on the route. but you will need to navigate it yourself.
  • Terrain is mixed: dirt, mud, gravel, some road sections (sorry), chalk, tech, grass…. and if the tide is right… nudist beach.
  • Bike: a cross bike is ideal, but MTBs will be absolutely fine.
  • Gears: yeah sure, whatever you want to use.
  • 100 miles all the way to Bulbarrow hill (pretty damned big).
  • Climbing: lots, all front loaded to the first half.
  • We will have a broom wagon to sweep up the unlucky and bring them back to the pub.
  • This is not a race, it’s a reliability trial.
  • You must wear a helmet and have front and rear lights. Some of you won’t finish in the daylight; we also get some thick coastal fog around here. Also read the T&Cs way down below.
  • There will be a pre event briefing which everyone must attend. This is likely to be at 7.30am on the day of the event.
  • Expect no marshals on route, expect no food stops (but I may sort something).
  • Sorry, guys, no refunds, but will make sure you still get your shirt.
