Lakelander Gravel Grinder, which describes itself as the premier gravel cycling event in Ireland, is open for the business for its 2024 edition, which is set to run late season.

Entries for the event – which features a variety of distances from 100km to 50km – have just opened with small discounts to entry fees for those who enter early.

The event, now part of a growing gravel movement on the island of Ireland, takes place in Fermanagh’s UNESCO-recognised Global Geopark, starting and finishing in the village of Belcoo, Co Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.

“Ireland’s Premier gravel cycling event, The Lakelander Gravel Grinder returns again to Co Fermanagh on 5 October 2024,” the organisers said.

“This ultimate gravel cycling event that’s open to gravel, cyclocross, MTB and even e-MTB riders will see riders traverse through relatively unexplored areas of forest wilderness.

“The routes – Big Dog 100k, the 60k Mongrel and the Little Dog 50k – will sweep through seven UNESCO heritage forests with up to 2,100 metres of elevation in the Big Dog, 1,200 meters elevation in the Mongrel and 1,100 meters in the Little Dog, while providing stunning views of countryside.”
