Gran Fonduro will be based in the beautiful grounds of historic Traquair House in the Tweed Valley. The event name sums it up – gran fondo meets enduro – with timed stages and a choice of a shorter 60-70km ride or the full 100km (approx) loop.

The race stages aim to celebrate the different kinds of fun to be had with this kind of bike riding. Expect timed singletrack, long forest road climbs, gravel TT and short sharp grinds. This event will venture deep into the Tweed Valley backcountry on some beautiful and undiscovered gravel and forest roads.
