February 2021

 The Dirt Dashes, a series of gravel and bikepacking events in England, Scotland, and Wales, are back for 2021. All events are a non-timed, self-supported reliability trial with overnight camping and great local food. The £85 entry fee covers the GPX file for navigation and a free Komoot regional map bundle, a tasty evening meal from Winston Churchill Venison at a scenic campsite and a bundle of carefully selected goodies. For the Dorset Dirt Dash there is also a one day 100 mile option with an entry fee of £45. The routes for the events are suitable for gravel and mountain bikes. There are not many rules apart from ‘don’t be a dick’. The Dirt Dash events originated as the Dorset Gravel Dash back in 2012. Charlie Hobbs, when he was better known as Charlie The Bikemonger, started a 100 mile gravel event, and then added an overnight 50/50 mile option
