From the organizers behind The Dirty Reiver, the Frontier 300 traverses the Northern Borderlands from the west coast of Scotland to the east coast in Northumberland and is far from your traditional “coast to coast” route. The inaugural event was semi-supported, offering camping and showers at the finish, and the option to ride the route alone or in pairs. While there were originally around 450 riders registered, COVID-19 restrictions lowered that number to around 250 riders, which is still quite impressive for the first event. The organizers put together a short four-minute video recap of the event that you can watch below.
The Salsa Frontier 300 Route
The Salsa Frontier 300 route is an all-road and gravel ride that traverses the Northern Borderlands of Scotland from west to east coast in Northumberland. The race organizers describe it as a well-balanced mix of good forest tracks and minor roads. The surfaces found on the ride are mostly wide hard-pack fit for a gravel bike with a good range of gears, or a lightweight MTB. Tires larger than 38mm are recommended.
