Argyll’s islands, the Inner Hebrides and Bute, offer fantastic bikepacking filled with beautiful beaches, some of the world’s best distilleries, great gravel tracks and local food experiences. The new Bikepacking Argyll’s Islands route, created by Bikepacking Scotland and commissioned by CalMac Ferries and Wild About Argyll, maps a 496km-journey (308 miles) connecting the Isles of Mull, Jura, Islay and Bute on a mixture of gravel tracks, singletrail, cycle paths and roads. The route also makes great use of ScotRail’s Highland Explorer, which provides space for up to 20 bikes, including tandems. The newly introduced train carriage offers a bike-friendly train connection between Glasgow, host city of the UCI Cycling World Championships in 2023, and Oban, where the new route begins. Bikes travel free on trains and all ferries along the route.   For new bikepackers and gravel cyclists Bikepacking Argyll’s Islands offers a wide range of accommodation and incentives to stop.

The long course is 117 km and 1600 meters climbing and the short course is 65 km with 600 altitude meters. Both courses have at least 90% gravel and forest roads. The routes are new for 2022 and both the long and short course consist of a loop, to minimize the risk of getting lost. For the 117 km route, the first half is quite fast and flat and the second half hilly and with poorer ground. It will be possible to put your own bottles / energy in a car that will be at the depot halfway for the long course. We recommend bikes with at least 35 mm tires, eg mtb, bike cross, gravel or hybrid. There will be a service vehicle following/meeting the riders along the route.   Includes energy bar & gel before start and buns and drinks after the event. Depot with the possibility to change your

Explore Your Boundaries - a new documentary by Mark Beaumont and Markus Stitz about gravel routes following the council boundaries of Clackmannanshire, East Lothian, Falkirk and Glasgow  ‘Explore Your Boundaries’ was inspired by the desire to create adventures close to home, a way of seeing the familiar in unfamiliar ways. Mark Beaumont, Guinness World Record holder for the fastest circumnavigation by bike, and Markus Stitz, singlespeed round the world cyclist and filmmaker, mapped 24 Scottish council boundary routes to encourage people to stay active, whether cycling or walking, and to inspire adventures that started and finished at their front door. To create the routes, they uploaded the council boundaries GPX files onto the mapping platform Komoot and matched them with the closest existing pathways. This ‘Explore Your Boundaries’ documentary captures their four adventures in Clackmannanshire, East Lothian and Falkirk, undertaken from June to September 2021, and Glasgow, undertaken during COP26, the

We are a small company offering guided gravel riding holidays in Southern Spain. We have been running mountain bike holidays here for about 5 years, and now we want to show people that Malaga is also a great place for gravel biking – there are literally thousands of kilometres of un-paved roads and tracks – amazing scenery, no traffic and great weather – it's really just ideal for gravel riding. We have personally planned and ridden hundreds of km of gravel routes all over the Malaga region, and we are still discovering new places to ride each week. There's something for everyone - from easy scenic rides, to fun and technical, to full day big mountain epics. The terrain ranges from easy double track through wide open farmland and dirt roads through forest, to rough tracks, river crossings and even some singletrack that you could call 'almost MTB'. There are plenty of

Anyone who can ride a bike on the road can ride on a trail – right?   Introducing Bike Skills Coaching days help you improve and hone those off road, gravel, mountain bike or cyclo-cross riding skills. Look in any park and you'll see loads of people happily riding around the place. Surely, you don’t need coaching for off-road riding, it's the same as riding on a road but with more bumpy bits, isn't it?   Almost, in my park, everyone is having a lovely time because all the trails are nice and smooth, add in some nasties, technical trail features or TTFs in the jargon, aka, rocks, gullies, gravel and roots and it all changes. Agree, most people can tackle these TTFs at a low level (as on our Green and Blue rides) but it isn’t much fun when these obstacles get a bit more obstacley, for the uninitiated riding becomes slow, difficult,
