For 2018, Eroica Britannia will operate on a tiered ticket system for Ride and Festival tickets. Put simply, this means the sooner you buy, the better the value.
The tiers of pricing are set when Eroica Britannia goes on sale, and will progress across the various tiers as we get closer to the event. We have an allocation of tickets for each tier and once the allocated amount of tickets has sold out, we progress onto the next tier and the price increases. Other than the price you pay, there is no difference to the ticket you receive.
Further information will be available via emails direct to your inbox and on our social channels.

"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."
The UK'S Top Endurance Events
"Covering a total distance of 100 miles, The Long Route is an ultimate test of cycling ability and both physical and mental fitness."
Top 10 Cycling Festivals in Europe
"It’s not just about the riding though – this huge three-day festival welcomed some 40,000 people last year with is mix of live music, bike jumbles, bars, eateries, camping."
