Event Summary

Event Overview

Brathay Belter Long - At 58 miles the Belter Long Course may not be the longest ride out there, but with 6,200 feet of climbing it’s no small effort! With the steeper climbs ranging between 20% and 35% you will certainly have to work for your end of ride meal. With views over the Duddon Valley, Coniston Water and Windermere it is sure to be a scenic ride.

Brathay Belter MediumBuilding on a combination of our previous route and rides, we bring you a revamped Brathay Belter Medium. The 44 mile route with 4,200 feet of climbing, presents a nice challenge for those looking for a less strenuous ride out than the Belter Long.

Brathay Belter ShortAt 15 miles with a total of 1,400 feet of climbing the Breeze is the ideal chance just to have a go at a cycling sportive while enjoying the stunning Lake District scenery.

About the Event

Info for Riders

Belter Long - Starting and finishing at Brathay Hall Ambleside, the Belter Long covers 58 miles over the Duddon Valley, Coniston Water and Windermere, so it is sure to be a scenic ride. With the steeper climbs ranging between 20% and 35% you will certainly have to work for your end of ride meal (which is included, by the way).

The Belter Long route is a difficult ride and requires an excellent level of fitness. It takes in five major climbs of 6,240 feet in total and that means steep and technical descents as well.

Belter Medium- Building on a combination of our previous route and rides, we bring you a revamped Brathay Belter Medium.  The 44 mile route with 4,200 feet of climbing, presents a nice challenges for those looking for a less strenuous ride out than the Belter Long. 

Covering a combination of previous routes and sections from the Belter Long the route offers those lookinng for a challenge, but something not quite so "brutal2 , the opportunity to enjoy some summer riding. Including climbs such as Blea Tarn, but steering around Wrynose Pass (unlike the Belter Long which goes over it), the route isn't flat by any stretch of the imagination. 

 

Belter ShortFor those new to cycling or just looking for something a bit less challenging, we bring you the Brathay Belter Short. Whether you’re new to cycling or want some exercise while waiting for someone on the longer routes, the Brathay Belter Short offers a great opportunity for your cycling season.

Whilst the Belter Short is definately not flat (no ride in the Lake District is) it gives newer riders a good oppurtunity to experience some of the UK's best road cycling.

Please do not treat your entry lightly and remember to respect the challenge.

We do our best to ensure the courses have the required signage but you should be aware of the route and terrain and plan your ride accordingly.
