Bristol Belter sportive returns on Sunday September 23

The Bristol Belter will return for its third edition on Sunday September 23 with the addition of a 75km Mini Belter route alongside the existing Classic Belter and Standard Belter courses.

The Classic Belter grows by a couple of kilometres to 155km (1,900m climbing) for 2013, while the Standard Belter is 115km (1,300m of climbing). Both courses have been updated to avoid eroded or overgrown roads. The new Mini Belter features 1,050m of climbing over the 75km course.

The event will once again be based at Redwood Lodge Country Club, which has toilets, showers, changing rooms and parking. A Belter tea and coffee bar on site will give riders the chance to grab a warm and drink and a snack before heading out as well as when they arrive back after the ride.

Headline sponsor Specialized will have a selection of their 2013 models on display and CycleOps and Torq will also have their latest products to show riders.

Entry costs £25 for the Classic and Standard Belter, and £20 for the Mini Belter. Enter online at
