You can join us at the following overnight bikepacking events in Scotland and England organised by our sister company Dirt Dash Ltd. The Dirt Dashes are fun and friendly overnight events, where you can enjoy the stunning landscapes in the company of other riders. At each event we provide a route file, a campsite, a tasty dinner and breakfast and support along the route.

If you are not able to join us, then check out our routes in the Cateran Ecomuseum and a Dunoon Dirt Dash route used for previous events.

‘The Dirt Dash weekends are sociable and friendly, but to crystalise that into a community takes time and repetition. Thankfully, Stitz and Hobbs are at it every year, putting like-minded people together, and forging a community around an otherwise individualistic part of our sport.’ James Howell-Jones, Global Cycling Network
