The Britannia Times
The Twilight Ride Pub Ride!Published on 10th. April 2017
As the dusk gathers and that lovely Summer sunset light starts to happen, we're off to the pub! Great British Traditions, especially on a Friday night don't get much bigger, or better than this...
The Twilight Ride sets off from the Pannier camp at 21.30 on Friday 16th June 2017. Fancy it? Then let's go! We've made it into a mini Great British Adventure by teaming up with adventure experts and Eroica Britannia pals Pannier - who will make sure everyone is going in the right direction... at least! Entries are now closed! (From Friday 21st April 2017 at 5pm)
Light's, Camera, Action! Wheels Roll at 21.30
The plan is to film our adventure heading forth into the dusk so we're asking everyone who is planning on joining us to bring some form of illumination - imagination and creativity please! We'll be filming from above and from the ground - so we want to ensure we are most handsomely represented! Get dressed up, switch your lights on and let's glow! It's the only condition of being allowed to come with us... So make sure to give it some thought!
We Adventure Northwest...
Our destination is The Royal Oak Pub - northwest up the High Peak Trail. We'll be riding traffic free all the way to Hurdlow - where we'll nip onto the road for 20 yards before arriving at the pub for a pint.
It is an 8 mile round trip (about 30 mins ride to the pub) and is an excellent opportunity to strike out onto the open trail and get your bearings. Of course one of the main reasons for us moving to Friden Grange is to be able to take advantage of the glorious Trails. The High Peak Trail is our arterial route in and out of The Festival so let's put it to great use! Eroica Britannia are incredibly proud to make a significant impact to the local economy while we're in the area - and we would like to recommend this rather excellent pub to you - and we know they'll be thrilled to see you! Drinks are on a 'buy your own' basis!
