Places Filling Up Fast For Sue Ryder Summer Cycle Events
Riders climbing the iconic Haworth main street last year in the Bronte Sportive
The annual summer sportive and mountain bike challenge organised by Manorlands’ cycle events group to raise funds for the Oxenhope Sue Ryder hospice, is once again proving popular with the region’s cyclists.

Supported by Yorkshire cycling retailer All Terrain Cycles, which has superstores in Saltaire and Wetherby, the popular Bronte Sportive will take place on 15th July with cyclists setting off from Keighley College, on a choice of four routes for all abilities from 29 miles to 88 miles.

MBT enthusiasts can enjoy the Bronte Mountain Bike Challenge which will be held on 16th September from Oxenhope Community Centre near Haworth, with four route options ranging from 15 miles to 35.1 miles.

As part of the cycle events, All Terrain Cycles will once again be offering a mystery bike-related prize for the winner of a free draw for all entrants who have raised more than £50 in sponsorship, as well as making a donation for each rider from the All Terrain race team who takes part in the events.

Over the years, the events have built up a loyal following, attracting hundreds of cyclists from Yorkshire and beyond with all proceeds, including entrance fees and sponsorship, being used to fund Sue Ryder’s care for people living with incurable illness in West Yorkshire. Last year, the three cycling events together succeeded in raising £24,000 for the Manorlands Hospice.

“With our Three Dales Mountain Bike Challenge not taking place this year we’re now encouraging anyone who enjoys cyling to choose from one of our remaining two rides,” says Andrew Wood of Sue Ryder. “We are looking forward to an even bigger turnout than last year for these two events as the cycling community comes together to raise vital funds for the hospice.

“As ever, we appreciate the support of local businesses like All Terrain Cycles who help to make these events such a success.”

Tony Booth, managing director of All Terrain Cycles, says: “This is the sixth year we’ve sponsored the Sue Ryder events – they’re fantastic rides, enjoying some of Yorkshire’s most beautiful scenery as well as offering challenges for cyclists of all abilities. We hope that the chance of winning some cycling goodies will spur on participants to raise even more for this fantastic local charity.”
