Back for 2019 with a new and exclusive collection of adventure apparel from Rapha, Grinduro brings you four unique events. A mix of gravel racing and mountain bike enduro, somewhere between a gran fondo and a music festival, they’re the most anticipated riding weekends on the calendar.28 February 2019
Grinduro is a bike race ridden at a social pace. Riders take on an all-terrain loop – usually around 80km in length – that can include anything from muddy singletrack, to gravel fire roads and tarmac sections. Four timed segments on the route add a competitive element but overall timings are based on these segments alone so you’re free to ride between stages at a conversational pace.
But the event is not just a bike race. It’s a weekend-long celebration of cycling with as much emphasis on the post-ride party as the race itself, with excellent food, the world’s biggest bike brands, live music, camping and a festival atmosphere. Rapha will be on the ground at all four events in 2019 with our all-new collection of off-road apparel.
New for 2019, Grinduro travels to the four corners of the Earth, bringing you four unique events.
As official event clothing sponsor, we have created a limited edition collection of off-road adventure apparel. We’ve taken your favourites from our Explore range and added a splash of purple to create clothing that’s at home on the trails and in the party tent after your ride. From muddy fire roads on the Isle of Arran to dusty Californian singletrack, it’s all you need for a full weekend of riding and relaxing.
In just three years, Grinduro has become one of the most sought after riding events on the calendar. But don’t take our word for it – from lycra-clad cross racers to daredevil downhill mountain bikers, there is no shortage of riders with stories to tell.

“Grinduro is like no other cycling event out there. The enduro format means one moment you’re racing, and the next, spinning along chatting to new friends from all round the world. It’s a true celebration of cycling in a beautiful setting.”

“There’s a reason I’ve gone to four Grinduro events. I’m lucky enough to have been to both Quincy and Scotland. Both have very different vibes but are similarly laid back, you get to race but chill at the same time, riding hard and then meeting up with your friends to talk about how sick the last segment was.”

“From putting on lycra inside your tent at 7am to dancing late into the night, hanging out at the swimming lake after the race to bombing dusty singletrack, Grinduro is the best weekend of the year, bar none.”
