The Dundry Drubber

Dundry Drubber Ride – Bristol Cycle Festival 2013 from Stick in Mind on Vimeo.

Short on distance, but high on pain. That’s the concept behind the Dundry Drubber, the toughest couple of hours you’re likely to spend on a bike this year. It’s a mere 25 miles in length, but packs in 3,000 feet of climbing at gradients of up to 1:4. A concentrated mix of hillclimb and sportive, with a marshalled and waymarked route for maximum enjoyment of suffering.


Rather than trying to dodge the inevitable, the Drubber celebrates our crinkly local terrain by ascending the towering giant that is Dundry Hill no less than four times. The ride finishes at the Carpenters Tavern, where your finishing time might be the price of your first pint!

The ride includes steep gradients, tight bends and variable surfaces so expect the unexpected. Helmet and two functioning brakes (fixed rear wheel counts) required.
