Frontier 300: 300 km in 30 hours across the Scottish Borders

Frontier 300

Frontier 300 is back on the cards for 2021. 10 Forests, 20 gravel sectors, 30 hour limit.

After the inaugural Frontier 300’s false start due to a pesky pandemic, the route has been refined and date rescheduled.

Taking place on Saturday 12th June 2021, Frontier 300 is a 300km supported all-road ride from the west coast of Scotland to the east coast of England linking up the Borders’ finest forests and gravel sectors. The sands of Druridge Bay will be home to the Salsa Cycle’s Finishers Party, as well as brunch on the beach.

The Frontier 300 event was conceived for riders looking for *even* more of a challenge than the Dirty Reiver (200 km), or those looking for a supported coast to coast challenge with a twist. The event can be either ridden solo, or shared and ridden as a relay.

In keeping with the route’s adventurous nature and as a nod of appreciation to the Rough Stuff Fellowship, the coast to coast includes a testing hike a bike section topping out at 500 metres, although the view and descent are well worth the effort.

To get around the logistics of an A to B ride, the organisers Focal Events, who are better known for hosting the Dirty Reiver and The Distance, are putting on optional coach shuttles to and from Carlisle, so the event can also be accessed easily using public transport. Alternatively, as the relay format is another option, pairs can choose to share riding and vehicle support duties from west to east.

Registration goes live on 1st November 2020. Rider entry fee can paid in two parts, allowing participants to spread the cost and secure their place with a simple deposit.

Frontier 300 is presented by Salsa Cycles and supported by Ortlieb, Julbo, Teravail, Exposure Lights, Arundel, 7Mesh, Squirt, komoot and Outdoor Provisions.
