New for 2019 is the Orro GravelCat adventureride, offering two routes that include sections on Britain’s oldest road, The Ridgeway. The Epic (88km/55 miles) and Standard (70km/43 miles) routes both meander their way through glorious rolling downland scenery, pick their way through and around ancient woodlands, negotiate sunken lanes and bridleways, and pass through charming 'stuck in time' villages, complete with timber-framed buildings and thatched roofed cottages.
The Epic route passes close by the prehistoric Uffington White Horse and the Iron Age Uffington Castles sites and has 12 off-road sectors totalling 55kms (62.5%) of the route’s total distance; the Standard route has 10 off-road sectors totalling 41kms (58%) of the route’s total distance. So, although relatively short, with such high percentages of each route off road and on a variety of trails and trail surfaces, both routes offer a challenge for all levels of riders.
