Now going into its 4th year the Bristol Belter 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.
We are also welcoming our new title sponsor ThermaTech™. With the help and dedication from the team at ThermaTech™ we will be able to take the Bristol Belter to the next level.
On the 1st September 2013 three different courses will be started from the Redwood Country Club at the western edge of the city. Riders can expect 1st class start/finish facilities with ample parking right next to the registration and start/finish, showers, toilets and changing facilities (part of the Redwood Country Club).
There are some old flyers in circulation which state the event date is 22nd September - This is incorrect, the correct date is 1st September 2013.

New for 2013:
We have listed with great interest to the feedback we had from the 2012 Belter. We will be adding a further time section to the long course to avoid that times at the finish will get mixed up from riders who set out to tackle the long Belter but decide to cut down to the Middle Belter. We have looked at the distances between the feed stations and have hopefully found a more even spread for the long and middle course.
The three courses on offer:
Classic Sportive – approx. 155km long with 1,900meters of climbing
Standard Sportive – approx 115km long with 1,300meters of climbing
Mini Sportive – approx 75km long with 1,050meters of climbing
All three courses will be electronically timed and riders can expect a finishing present when coming over the line back at Redwood Country Club.
Entry is easy by simply going to the entry page. There you can choose between the good old downloadable entry form or fast and simple online entry.
The entry fee is £27 / £22 (for the Mini Belter) and includes:
• Ride entry
• Electronic chip timing
• Service stations on course
• Finishing present
• Free parking
• Free usage of facilities
• Free certificate
