Congratulations to our Eroica hamper winner

Jackie Ames was the lucky winner of our Fortnum & Mason ‘The English Essentials Hamper’ at Eroica Britannia. Jackie tells us of her family's experience at this summer's must-cycle event.
Two men with a bicycle

After taking part in the inaugural Eroica last year, we were champing at the bit for the registration to open this year.

We arrived on the Saturday morning, after queuing for a while – it was obviously going to be busier this time around, and we found a lovely pitch in the second camping field – nice and soft on top of long grass and buttercups.

First stop was the cycle jumble – a must for the two menfolk – and soon we had a selection of cycle jerseys, longer toeclips and a few other bits and pieces.

Introductory Ride

One of an occasional series of figure 8 introductory rides, with a 20 mile morning loop with a mid morning cafe stop and returning to a cafe near Derby for lunch.  Followed by an afternoon 20 mile loop.

Routes mainly on lanes with some well surfaced off road sections and only short stretches om main road where unavoidable.  Fairly flat and at an easy pace.  All welcome, if you'd like to know more please contact ctcdab@gmail.com
