Kinesis UK Iron Duke Gravelcross

December 13 2020
Marlborough, South East, UK

The Iron Duke is the latest addition to the Kinesis UK Gravelcross Series. Based at Marlborough in Wiltshire, this is a proper open hill Gravelcross, taking in ancient forests downland ridges and picturesque river valley. The Iron Duke takes you from the edge of the historic market town up onto the ancient Ridgeway and back, on a superb exploration of this varied and historic landscape.

It’s a ride of wide open scenery, long climbs and flowing descents. The Iron Duke will take you away of your everyday self to that place you can only find in the saddle;  a ride to challenge your legs and lungs, get your heart pumping and lift your soul!

The Kinesis UK Iron Duke takes you through the heart of a landscape that spans the ages! From the historical town of Marlborough, ride up into hills littered with historic sites, including the Iron Age hill fort at Barbury Castle, and through the ancient Savernake Forest, owned and managed by the same family since the Norman Conquest and home to trees up to and over 1,000 years in age.

From St Johns College on the edge of town, you will ride into Savernake to explore the maze of Forest trails, before tracking the beautiful Kennet Valley to cross the river and ride up into Marlborough Downs, and onto the magnificent Ridgeway. After your excursion into the hills, there’s a long flowing descent back down to the valley, and a last blast through the West Wood before you return to the finish.

This a ride with an epic feel – broad, open countryside with sweeping views and long, rolling trails to enjoy. The combination of open hill, riverside and forest trails adds variety to the ride and showcases the beauty of this corner of the country! Every mile of hte Iron Duke is well worth the effort!
