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

When planning your training program you need to decide: Are you completing, competing or conquering? It's important to be realistic - set an impossible aim and you’ll soon lose motivation.
