Sign Up To This Summer's Challenge. Join The Ride!
Make no mistake, Eroica Britannia is a challenge. Choose the distance, 25, 55 or even 100 miles. Choose your bike - pre-1987 cycles only, a carbon fibre free zone. While the weekend Festival is all about good times The Ride is not a fancy dress procession. From the moment of signing up, it's months of planning, training and preparing to be part of a weekend to remember. Read more HERE. Don't worry if you don't have a bike - you can hire one HERE!
choose YOUR TEAM
Choose your team members carefully, you'll need a minimum of 6 riders. They need to be of excellent humour, lovers of adventure and up for a challenge. They need to have access to a pre-1987 road bike - although we have road-ready bikes to hire HERE. They need to be willing to undertake a Great British Adventure and travel through the splendours of The Peak District to stop off at 'feast stops' along the way.
Register Your Team
You may well have already entered The Ride - that's ok! All teams members need to have individually entered The Ride - but then officially list and register your team members.
This is a great chance for companies, brands, cycling clubs, groups of friends to ride together and enjoy the day as one! To qualify as a Team, you need to wear matching kit, so matching jerseys at least or era specific threads that identify you as belonging to a team - i.e. vintage tweeds.
