GBDURO? Best described as a scrappy rolling picnic through Britain’s ever changing landscapes…
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 event follows our GBDIVIDE route designed to embrace 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.
The ride consists of 4 timed stages (~500km each); lowest aggregate time over the 4 stages ‘wins’… nothing.
Since 2020, GBDURO has been a #noflyride i.e. riders must get to/from the start/finish without taking a flight. This was because having the burden of riders’ carbon emissions from flights on our conscience didn’t sit right with us (more details here). This is part of our wider mission to extend ‘leave no trace’ principals to beyond just the road/trail and we have been delighted by riders’ commitment and ingenuity to make this a reality.
