The Dunoon Dirt Dash is a self-supported bikepacking event on the Cowal Peninsula near Glasgow, split over two days with an overnight camp on 26/27 September 2020. This is the perfect way to experience the rugged beauty of Scotland’s Adventure Coast with fine gravel riding, camaraderie, camping and castles.
Format: non-timed, self-supported reliability trial with overnight camping
Route: around 132 km with 2750 m of climbing. PLEASE NOTE: Day 1 might include a section of 4.5 km which crosses steep, boggy terrain where pushing the bike is neccesary and there are NO obvious tracks. Route subject to changes. Here's an idea on Bikepacking Scotland's website
Entries: £80 for first 50 entries, £85 afterwards
Navigation: The route will be supplied electronically before the event. The course is not marked, you are responsible for your own navigation.
Bikes: mountain bikes & gravel bikes (e-bikes are allowed, but we cannot guarantee charging points) with a minimum recommended tire size of 40mm, which must be in good working order
