FAQs

  • Do you allow ebikes in your gravel events?

    Yes we do. Electric gravel bikes & electric MTBs are both welcome. We can't guarantee charging around the course though so make sure your battery life is sufficient for the distance you've chosen.

  • Are your gravel events fully marked?

    Are your gravel events fully marked? The Haldon Heroic is fully marked. The Devon Grit is self nav. See our article on why the Devon Grit is self-nav.

  • Do I need a gravel bike for your gravel events?

    Definitely not. A mountain bike or a CX (cyclo-cross) bike will be almost as quick. The only thing we stipulate is that you use tyres that are at least 35mm wide & we recommend 38mm. ebikes are also welcome.

  • Will there be timing chips?

    Yes, timing chips are mounted on the back of your race numbers. These need to be attached, using the zip ties we provide, to the front of your bike. Please ensure, as far as you can, that the number is not covered up by cables, bags or anything else.

  • Are there any age restrictions on your sportives?

    Yes there are. You need to be 15 or over to take part in any of the sportives unaccompanied. Age guidelines for the various events & distances are on the individual event pages.

  • Do I need to be a member of a club to enter?

    No, all our events are open to all whether you're a member of a club or not.
