Building on a combination of our previous route and rides, we bring you a revamped Brathay Belter.


At 58 miles this 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.



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.



For those new to cycling or just looking for something a bit less challenging, this is for you.

Whether you’re new to cycling or want some exercise while waiting for someone on the longer routes, our short ride offers a great opportunity for your cycling season. It presents an ideal opportunity for an enjoyable family weekend ride or a something gentle for those looking to take it easy.
