2 days of Gravel riding the epic Lakes. 


GRVL sponsor THE DISTANCE gravel ride event


From a single start point, each rider will visit a series of checkpoints throughout the day. How they get between the checkpoints will be dependent on their rate of progress and the style of riding they choose. From ‘adventure roads’ to mountain bike trails, there are up to 3 route options at every checkpoint and your arrival time will determine which route options are open to you.

Simply the faster you are, the further you ultimately ride… or as we like to view it, the more sociable you are the shorter the distance to the comfort of camp.

Oh and you won’t know the routes until you get to the checkpoint and you won’t know your ultimate destination until you get there … fun? We think so.

Some will ride 80+ miles, some won’t reach 50 miles, but all will arrive to hot food, a comfortable camp and a complimentary beer (don’t worry, there’s Gin and Tonics and soft drinks too). The overnight gives an opportunity to relive the day with friends old and new. There will also be some inspirational adventures to be told by some brand ambassadors. 



 Note: The first 50 riders to sign up get a pair of our GRVL socks for FREE, worth £14.
