The Naughty Frontier
24 August 2019£50
It’s Naughty, but not as you know it.
After the success of the Naughty Northumbrian Enduro, it seemed only fitting to pay homage to the remote, beautiful and rugged terrain of the North by launching our new event, The Naughty Frontier.
Taking in 40 “Northumbrian miles” this challenging route will reward a spirit of adventure with stunning views, breath taking summits and of course, the option of a cool Wylam Brewery pint when you make it back to base.
Taking you up to the England – Scotland border, and through the heart of the Northumbrian National Park, this event is open to all and everyone of a reasonable fitness – In a true “run what ya brung” ethos, all bikes are welcome though it’s best suited to Gravel and XC bikes.
Long climbs will be followed by fast, grin-inducing descents on a mixture of gravel and grass double track that riding in the Cheviots is famed for.
There will be food stations on course, though we add that this is definitely a “two sandwich” ride.
As part of the wider Naughty Northumbrian event, there will be camping on offer, aforementioned beer, great food, music and films, along with fire pits, great craic and a sense of disconnect from the frantic pace of modern life.
Pack a camera, a tent, bring mates and enjoy the Sportive format without pressure.
