Event details

  • Date: 15 July 2018
  • Location: Leeds City College, Keighley Campus, Keighley, West Yorkshire

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 ninth event will take place on Sunday 15th July 2018 and, as in previous years, there will be four routes to suit all abilities.

The big one, the Bronte Monster, is 88 miles and, while 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.

All proceeds go to Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice

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.
