GBDURO is a 2000km self-supported bikepacking enduro from Land's End to John O'Groats on road, gravel, singletrack, and everything in between.
The ride consists of 4 timed stages (~500km each); lowest aggregate time over the 4 stages 'wins'... nothing. This format seeks to find the perfect balance point between hard riding and community.
The newly established route embraces the versatility of 'all-road' bikes to cover big distances on new roads and ancient ways, immersing riders in the rich and unique history that has shaped the British Isles.
2019 is the inaugural edition comprising a select field, ~1/3 of whom are women. Riders will have to average ~200km/day (and ~3,000m of climbing/day) to make the Finisher's Party.
