The Bristol Belter will take place on the 6th September 2015 and will be the ideal event to celebrate the end of the summer and to bring another great season of sportive riding to a fantastic finish. After a long summer of training rides and sportive events the riders will be in perfect shape to tackle one of the three courses on offer.
NEW for 2015
For the 2015 Belter we are going to give the riders three new courses – a new MINI, STANDARD and CLASSIC Belter. You will find some ‘old bits’, lots of classic South West sections and lots and lots of new additions to our courses.
The 2015 Bristol Belter offers a new twist on Sportive riding. Those who want to ride the classic 100 miles will first conquer a ‘warm up’ loop up towards the lower end of the Cotswold hills before heading south west, riding in the Mendips and lake region to complete the full distance.
The idea is the first 35 miles is an all new Cotswold loop taking in some glorious Gloucestershire country side including Castle Coombe village then heads back to The Fry Club in Keynsham were refreshments await, then those riders wanting to join friends for the traditional Mendip 65 miles can hook up and ride out together for some of the best riding Somerset has to offer.
