The Routes
Our three routes: Charlotte, Emily and Anne, take their names from the three Bronte Sisters who lived in Haworth and were inspired in their writing by the stunning and challenging landscape that the routes navigate. Heathcliffe is one of their tortured characters, not unlike the route!

Heathcliffe - A 36.4 mile extreme challenge following the very popular route first used last year. Riders tackle the notorious 'stairs' and cycle across the moors to Widdop, towards Worsthorne and back view a new section on the Pennine Bridleway. You will then return almost to the finishing line before doing an extra nine miles including the Cock Hill climb and a route over Thornton Moor. This route is tough, are you?

Charlotte - A 27.6 mile extreme challenge route - following the very popular new route used in 2013. Riders tackle the notorious 'stairs' and goes over the moors to Widdop, towards Worsthorne and back via a relatively new section of the Pennine Bridleway and then descend the 'stairs'.View the route.

Emily - This is the same new intermediate route of 23.4 miles which was very popular in 2013. The route goes over the moor to Widdop then to Shuttleworth Pasture, historic Wycoller and back via Stanbury. It is a challenging mix of tracks, trails and minor roads, but not as intense as the Charlotte. View the route.

Anne - Featuring a less rugged terrain with just three difficult climbs, this route is ideal for less experienced riders. As well as the 13 mile option there is a 2 mile extension option, which takes in more of the beautiful St. Ives Estate at Bingley. The Anne route includes a scenic loop from Oxenhope towards Crossroads, Hainworth, Harden and Cullingworth. Suitable for the family and younger children, but under 11's must be accompanied by an adult. View the route.

All routes start and finish at Oxenhope Recreation Ground. All participants will receive a medal and a well earned complementary hot meal at the finish.
