2020 Dunoon Dirt Dash
26 September 2020 - 27 September 2020£85
Bikepackers and gravel cyclists can follow the route for the annual Dunoon Dirt Dash, a self-supported adventure cycling event. Good fitness and even better bike handling and carrying skills are essential for this route, but the effort is amply rewarded with extensive views over Loch Striven, fast singletrails, castles, great cafes and many kilometres of fine gravel tracks. The 133km route, designed by Bikepacking Scotland founder and round the world cyclist Markus Stitz, packs in more than 2000m of climbing and is best ridden in two or three days. It starts and finishes at the Victorian Pier in Dunoon.
We are back in 2020 after a rad time in 2019. Enjoy gravel bikepacking at its very best on Scotland’s Adventure Coast. 81 miles (131km) of singletrack, gravel paths, forestry roads, public roads, cycle paths and hike a bike.
Just over 80 miles of the coastal mountains on the wild Argyll coast, with an overnight camp featuring great food and a few beers.
Saturday 26th September to Sunday 27th September.
Pucks Rest Hotel (a beer garden beside the sea), Dunoon, Scotland.
