An Update on Eroica NOVA
Published on 18th. April 2018
There are many elements, fine detail and many people that go into creating a mass participation Ride event! It took nearly 2 years to work on the Classic Ride for Eroica Britannia, planning, routes, land owners and all relevant permissions for 3 routes.
We decided the time was right to expand our weekend ride scope for this year and run our first test event for an additional ride for Eroica Britannia - Eroica Nova
2018 will be the second year that our Italian counterparts have run NOVA successfully. We took the decision on our 5th anniversary in 2018 to trial NOVA in the Peak District. A small test event for a limited number of riders.
Over the past year we have consulted again with all the relevant authorities and it seemed that NOVA was able to run as planned. To capture the competitive nature of NOVA with the timed sections - we have not been able to find a solution with all the authorities.
Rather than compromise and change the ethos of Nova, we have taken the decision to halt planning on the event and therefore cancel NOVA for 2018.
We have already been in touch with every rider who signed up to NOVA to offer them a full refund or the chance to switch onto the Classic Ride.
