The 14th Bronte Mountain Bike Challenge takes part on 22 September 2019.
Sponsored by All terrain Cycles and Colin Appleyard

Three of our four routes – Charlotte, Emily and Anne – take their names from the three Bronte Sisters who lived in Haworth and were inspired in their writing by the stunning and challenging landscape that the routes navigate. The fourth route – Heathcliff – takes its name from one of their best known characters who spent many hours out on the Pennine moors, as you will do if you select that route.

Heathcliff
A 35.1-mile extreme challenge route. Riders tackle the notorious ‘stairs’ and goes over the moors to Widdop, towards Worsthorne and back via a relatively new section of the Pennine Bridleway, they then return almost to the finish before doing an extra 9 miles including the Cock Hill climb and a route over Thornton Moor.

Charlotte
A 28.1-mile challenge route. Riders tackle the notorious ‘stairs’ and goes over the moors to Widdop, towards Worsthorne and back via a relatively new section of the Pennine Bridleway and then descend the ‘stairs’.

Emily
This is the same new intermediate route of 21.6 miles first used in 2016. The route goes over the moor to Walshaw then back towards the start before taking in a section over Thornton Moor. It is a challenging mix of tracks, trails and minor roads, but not as intense as the Charlotte and the Heathcliff.

Anne
This 13.1-mile route goes up the upper part of Stairs Lane over the moor to Walshaw village then back to the finish. It is a challenging mix of tracks, trails and minor roads, but not as intense as the other routes. While suitable for the family and children who have ridden across this type of terrain and landscape before, there are some sections where less experienced and fit riders might need to dismount. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
