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.
The ride will start from Brathay Hall at 8am allowing plenty of time for everyone to get back for Lunch.
