When Charlie The Bikemonger first organised this event, it was believed to be the first gravel event in the UK.

The Kinesis UK Dorset Dirt Dash offers two different events on the same route on an action packed and fun weekend on 25/26 May 2024. The Kinesis UK Dorset Dirt Dash 5050 is a self-supported bikepacking event over two days, while the Kinesis UK Dorset Dirt Dash 100 is the ultimate one day gravel grinder. Both take you around the amazing scenery on the Isle of Purbeck around Swanage. This was one of the first gravel events in the UK, and is the perfect way to experience the rugged beauty of Dorset and the Jurassic Coast with fine gravel riding, camaraderie and castles.
