Thank-you to everyone who joined us for Eroica Britannia 2018!
THE GREAT BRITISH ADVENTURE 2018
We'd like to extend a handsome thank-you to everyone who joined us in the beautiful Peak District for Eroica Britannia 2018, one of the most talked about events in the cycling and festival calendars. Thousands joined us this year to be a part of The World’s Most Handsome Bike Ride on Sunday June 17th 2018 to celebrate our fifth year.
This year we had record numbers of riders for both 'The Light of Luciano Twilight Ride' on the Friday and Saturday's British Cycling Family Ride. We also enjoyed a wonderful weekend of eclectic music, entertainment, exquisite shopping, incredible food & drink, boutique camping, and much more.

"Back at the festival after an exciting 55 miles of road and gravel, our group reconnected and talked about the experiences of the road. The stories were all the same: old bikes are brilliant fun, long descents and old brakes make for aching hands, and why didn’t we all keep our pre-1987 bikes? They’re great fun!"
Men's Health Magazine
"It was great riding and by the time we came off the trail and hit a first (unofficial) coffee stop, the true character of the event was really starting to show. This wasn’t really a race, it was a grand social occasion. Nobody was in a hurry and riders sat around sipping espressos, chatting, joking and admiring each other’s vintage attire. A wonderful atmosphere."
"Eroica Britannia is not a themed ride in that sense, although many of those traits apply here. You must ride a vintage bike older than 1987. Your attire should be of similar age, as well as your shoes, gloves and other accessories but don’t be mistaken, this is no casual jaunt around the park. This is no leisurely stroll, only sated by a cold beer at a pub. Eroica Britannia is a ride for cyclists."

"Covering a total distance of 100 miles, The Long Route is an ultimate test of cycling ability and both physical and mental fitness."
