Dirty Boar

Gravel Ride 2023

This is our 1 day endurance gravel ride (160-170km, 2500hm) in the Hautes Fagnes (Belgium). 

We start together at 7AM. A group start enhances the camaraderie and gives you the chance of meeting people that ride the same pace as you.

The route has a maximum amount of good rolling gravel or forest roads, some river crossings, a lake and a lot of great views. It should not be too technical but a few difficult sections never hurt anybody :-) 

To give you the biggest chance of completing the ride, we give you the best feed stations. And the Dirty Boar vibe on the road and at the finish.

Check our Youtube channel or pictures and articles to see what it was like on the previous editions

Terms, Conditions and recommendations

Check this link for the Terms & conditions

We also have a few recommendations :

  • The ride is perfect for gravel bikes. But you can use any bike that is suited to ride offroad. Check out our news article Choose your Dirty Boar weapon

  • Bring a GPS device and maybe also a USB powerbank/battery because the ride might take longer than you expected. We will provide you with the gpx track 1 week before the event.

  • The ride takes place in a somewhat remote area. So make sure you take all the necessary tools & spares to handle common problems (flat tyres, loose bolts... and maybe also a broken chain). And when it's wet be sure to bring a spare set of brake pads. Some cable ties might be useful for several things.

  • You should be able to carry enough food & water to cover, at least, the distance between the feeding stations (60-70km)

  • We start when the sun rises. So you shouldn't need any lights. But if the weather should be bad (rain, fog,...), we recommend you bring some lights so that at least you are visible for cars and other people on the roads.

A place to sleep before/after the ride
