REMOTE BORDERLAND SETTING
TOUGH 50 MILE LAP (x2 FOR LONG ROUTE)
TESTING YOUR BODY, MIND AND BIKE TO THE LIMIT
MTB folklore tells a tale of an epic 100 mile bike race that ran at Kielder many years ago. Notorious for breaking bikes and breaking wills this was an stunning test of machine and body in the wilderness of the Northumbrian border lands. Returning with a slightly different format is one mighty beast of a day out on your bike. You can enter the 50 mile sportive or the 100 mile race. The route consists of a single 50 mile lap that strings together all the best bits of Kielder. Yes you guessed it, twice round for the race. This route makes use of the superb purpose built trails and also the special xc orientated trails that are used by the local riders. The route promises to be fun whilst the distance turns it into a huge challenge.
