EVENT DATE

Sunday 23rd September 2012

LOCATION

Failand, Bristol

EVENT SUMMARY

Now going into its 3rd year the Bristol Belter powered by Specialized will be welcoming the riders with a perfect selection of rolling hills, coastal views, lung bursting climbs and spine tingling gorge descents – simply the best North Somerset and the Mendips have to offer.

ROUTE INFORMATION

A choice of 3 route options are on offer for 2012 with the original and classic distance being joined by a new mini sportive distance –

  • Classic Sportive – approx. 151km long with 1,900metres of climbing
  • Standard Sportive – approx 110km long with 1,300 metres of climbing
  • Mini Sportive – approx 85km long with 1,050 metres of climbing

“For 2012 we have added a shorter MINI Belter to the line-up, giving riders the chance to get involved who are not too keen to go for the longer distances or just getting into sportives. The now three courses on offer will be primarily run on quite road away from the main flow of traffic and will showcase some of the less obvious climbs and sections the area has to offer. That doesn’t mean that you will not be tested on iconic climbs like the Cheddar George or Burrington Combe but on top of that there will be a few surprised thrown into the mix which will make the ride a real experience even for local sportive riders.”
