The Summer DRRt -

The DRRt is a series of cross country challenges from one of the largest mountain bike clubs in the UK. The Dorset Rough Riders have been seeking out the best trails in Dorset and have come up with a series of 30+ mile waymarked routes which cover the best riding you’ll find in the area.

In 2017 we saw some great new options added to the DRRt to allow for more people to ride….so continuing on from 2017 the LITE versions of the DRRt are now permanently in place, so if you don’t feel you can manage the EPIC route, do the LITE which is approximately 2/3rds the distance!

Please also download and use the What3Words app on your telephones because we are now using this on the waymarked maps provided.
