Entries are now open for the Brathay Cycling Sportives held in the beautiful Lake Districe on 25th June. There are three different routes of varying difficulty that will take in all the sights (and climbs) the area has to offer!

Brathay Brutal - New for this year and kindly named by the team at Bike Bible after tackling our inaugural event, by popular demand we bring you the Brathay Brutal. At 58 miles the Brutal 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 (which is included by the way). With views over the Duddon Valley, Coniston Water and Windermere it is sure to be a scenic ride. 

Standard entry £22 


Brathay Belter - Building on a combination of our previous route and rides, we bring you a revamped Brathay Belter. Changes to the route following comments from last year result in a 44 mile route with 4,200 feet of climbing, presenting a nice challenge for those looking for a less strenuous ride out than the Brutal. 

Covering a combination of the 2016 route and sections from the Brathay Brutal the route offers those looking for a challenge, but something not quite so "brutal", the opportunity to enjoy some summer riding. Including climbs such as Blea Tarn, but steering around Wrynose Pass (unlike the Brutal which goes over it), the route isn't flat by any stretch of the imagination. 

Standard adult entry £22 

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

The Breeze presents an ideal opportunity for an enjoyable family weekend ride or a something gentle for those looking to take it easy. At 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. 

Standard adult entry £15
