Event Overview

Can you beat the Wallop? Or will you get walloped! At MovingMotion we are all about challenging events in stunning locations and this ride lives up to that. Starting in the lovely borders village of Newcastleton this sportive wonders across the bleak and stunning hills and moors of Hadrian’s Wall country and across to Keilder forest and reservoir. The area has a remote feel with only small settlements along the route of the event. The character of the cycling is mixed with some tough climbs but also sections you can pick up the pace along especially along Keilder Reservoir.

Info for Riders

It’s far from an easy day out and is a challenge requiring fitness and commitment. Given the topography of the area it’s a long loop with no shorter variant – so it is committing. Much of the route is on high and open country so the weather will form part of the challenge and when it’s wild up there it’s very wild, even in mid-summer. So think carefully about your equipment and clothing; bring the clothes and spares you need.
