Grinduro Scotland! Will you be there?

It's time to cash in those frequent flyer miles...

In short, Grinduro is just what the name suggests: Gravel Road Race + Mountain Bike-Style Enduro = one long loop of pavement and dirt, where finishing times aren’t based on overall loop time, but four timed segments (each roughly five-to-ten minutes).
But Grinduro is not just a bike race. It’s a celebration of cycling with as much emphasis on the fun as the ride, with excellent food, an impressive display of art and incredible handmade bikes, live music, camping and a festival atmosphere.
The course is a serious affair but the Grinduro isn’t meant to be a sufferfest. We’ve linked together some of our favorite roads and trails on the Isle of Arran. The course features a mix of surfaces (smooth pavement, gravel and hard-packed dirt) over the trails terrain that ranges from steep and technical to fast and flowing. Along the way you’ll enjoy views of rugged coastline, lowland marsh, soaring peaks, and historic ruins.
With a Gran Fondo-style mass start from Lamlash, you’ll be pedaling out of the village alongside your heroes and the pace will be conversational—because overall time doesn’t matter, only the four timed segments. The Grinduro segments are designed to reward the most well rounded of rouleurs.

Grinduro is capped at 400 riders and these spots are going fast, so don’t miss your chance. Register now!

Race entry is £150, but you’re getting a lot more than a bike race. Registration fees include the following:

EXCELLENT FOOD: Gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served on Saturday by Podium Catering as well as beer and other tasty beverages. Check out the full menu here.

PREMIUM SWAG: Grinduro participants will receive an amazing care package of limited edition.

TENT CAMPING: We’re offering free camping to Grinduro racers in Lamlash. The camping will be in close enough proximity to the event village for ease of access but far enough away you can still enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. There will also be very limited option of camper vans if booked well in advance.

ART & BIKE GALLERY: Grinduro’s Art and Bike Exhibit is a curated display of some of the most interesting and elaborate works of art in cycling. We showcase the independent artisans and the iconoclasts who rarely get the spotlight at traditional trade shows and bike events.

We’ve also partnered with the authority of UK custom frame builders, The Bicycle Academy. The Bicycle Academy’s Andrew Denham will be hosting a steel-brazing clinic, open to all Grinduro riders

LIVE MUSIC WITH THE VAN T’S: We’re proud to announce that one of our favorite bands, The Van T’s, is going to be headlining! We’ve been mesmerized by this twin sister led four-piece Glaswegian surf-rock band. We’re also working on a few other special musical guests, including a DJ to take the party into late night.
