The Bronte Sportive is a challenging cycling event in the heart of Pennine West Yorkshire. Our 7th event will take place on Sunday 17 July 2016 and as in previous years there will be four routes to suit all abilities.
However the big one, the Bronte Monster is 88 miles and though it’s by no means one of the longest sportives it is recognised as being mile for mile one of the toughest sportives in the UK.
The event starts and finishes at the Keighley Campus of Leeds City College and riders can set off between 7:30am and 9:30am. Those doing the 25 mile route can set off until 10am.
The routes are the same as the past two years and take in over 30 miles of the 2014 Grand Depart Yorkshire route.
- The 88 mile Bronte Monster route is know to be one of the toughest tests for sportive riders in the UK.
- The 71.5 mile route is for those who are not quite ready for the Monster.
- The 54.5 mile route is a good challenging ride and over half the distance follows the route of the 2014 Grand Depart Yorkshire.
- The 23 mile route is good for beginners and the less experienced, it takes in 7.3 miles of the best Grand Depart Yorkshire route including the cobbled Haworth Main Street and Penistone Hill.
