Event description
Saddle up for the Bronte Sportive 2021! With routes for all abilities and the 93 mile ‘Heathcliff’, supporting Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice.

About this event

The Bronte Sportive with the Queensbury Queens of the Mountain is a challenging cycling event in the heart of the West Yorkshire Pennines.

Our 11th event, sponsored by All Terrain Cycles, will take place on Sunday 18th July, 2021.

For 2021, there will be six Bronte-themed routes to suit all abilities:

The Heathcliff at 93.1 miles is by no means one of the longest sportives but is recognised as being mile for mile one of the toughest sportives in the UK up alongside the Fred Whitton.

The Charlotte is 74.5 miles, the Emily is 50.3 miles and the Anne is 29.2 miles. The 23.7 mile route is shorter and flatter that Anne, it is named Branwell largely because it passes an average of over 1 pub per mile along the route.

New for 2021 is Patrick (9 miles), which is a relatively easy route for beginners. This like all of our routes will include the iconic Haworth main street where all participants get the opportunity to do the Chris Mitchell Memorial Hill Climb Challenge.

The event starts and finishes at Keighley College and riders will set off in waves. Riders in the two longest routes can set off between 7:30am and 8:30am. Riders doing Emily set off between 8am and 8:30, those doing Anne and Branwell will leave at between 8:30am and 9:10pm and all those taking part on the Patrick ride will go at 9:15am.

As in 2019 the members of the Queensbury Queens of the Mountain Cycling Club will be bringing their unique enthusiasm to our feed stations and start finish area!
