Untamed Gravel Sportive

Back for 2024 for its 3rd edition by popular demand, The Untamed offers a Sunday Gravel-Oriented event to our 2-day Pedal Norfolk Festival set in the prestigious grounds of Holkham Hall. Experience the big open skies of Norfolk along quiet lanes and bridleways as you criss-cross North Norfolk and pass through beautiful villages. 

The Untamed offers 25, 50 and 75 mile routes which may feel much longer if your a roadie coming to try a Gravel-Oriented event for the first time! Each route is approximately 40% bridleway or unpaved tracks with quiet lanes (which in Norfolk can be equally as challenging!) making up the majority of the remainder. 

You are welcome to book camping on-site at Holkham Hall for Friday and Saturday nights to make a weekend of it with live music, bar and street food available on Saturday night. Perhaps take in a road Sportive on Saturday as well?

As always with TPR Events, our routes are fully signposted, our rides are fully inclusive of feed stops and the 75 mile option also offers lunch. Full mechanical support and broom wagon is provided for peace of mind. 

The event is open to all riders of all abilities and ages. We encourage all types of bikes as well, with the ability to complete this ride on a Gravel, MTB, Hybrid or E-Bike.

Untamed Ride Options

75 Mile Route

This 75 mile route will head south and west taking in some stunning gravel tracks and bridleways.

This ride is a challenge and suitable for more experienced and athletic riders.  You will be supported the whole way round with our all inclusive drink stops run by our amazing volunteers. 

 

There will be some off road parts that are more suited to gravel bikes and some that are more suited to MTB and hybrids but thats the fun of it. E-Bikes and anything else you can think of are all welcome as well with suitable tyres.

Pedal Norfolk Festival

The Untamed is part of the 2-day Pedal Norfolk Cycling Festival set in the prestigious Holkham Hall estate. We have teamed up with the Holkham team to bring you a weekend celebration of all the things we love about the cycling lifestyle – great rides on quiet roads, good friends and craic, food, music, and possibly a cheeky celebratory drink as the sun sets across the wonderful parkland setting.  

You can book camping for Friday and Saturday night with street food, bar and live music available until 10pm on Saturday. This is a very, very rare opportunity to camp, caravan or motorhome in the beautifully idyllic Holkham estate in North Norfolk so book your accommodation early. 

 

Go Doubler at Pedal Norfolk!

How often do you get the chance to ride an event both days of the weekend? 

Well at the Pedal Norfolk Festival  that is exactly how we have designed it. Two road events on different courses, mix it up with a road sportive Saturday and a gravel ride Sunday or if you’re completely nuts, Insanity plus Victory for a 250 mile weekend. Ultimate kudos from your fellow riders…

Not only will your bespoke individual medals interlock, we will offer you a free Pedal Norfolk Doubler gift on Sunday! Go Double at Pedal Norfolk!
