The Bronte Sportive is organised in conjunction with the Manorlands cycling events group and is a challenging cycling event in the heart of the West Yorkshire Pennines.
Our 8th event will take place on Sunday 16th July 2017 and, as in previous years, there will be four routes to suit all abilities. The big one, the Bronte Monster, is 88 miles long and, although 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.
Help care for local people.
Thanks to generous sponsorship from our sponsor All Terrain Cycles, all entry fees and any sponsorship raised goes straight to funding Sue Ryder's care for people living with incurable illness within West Yorkshire. There is no obligation for participants to fundraise but obviously we are grateful to those who do.
The event starts and finishes at the Keighley Campus of Leeds City College. Riders of routes 2-4 can set off between 7:30am and 9:30am; those doing the 23-mile route 1 can set off up until 10am. This year, the routes are currently under review and will be posted as soon as possible.
They are likely to be: Route 1 - 23 miles Route 2 - 54.5 miles Route 3 - 71.5 miles Route 4 - The Monster - 90 miles If you want to sign up now, we will make sure you are entered into the route nearest to your requested mileage.
