Having completed two 100 mile century rides over the last two years and feeling, well, slightly out of place on my 1980’s steel frame bicycle with (only) 10 gears and shifters positioned on the down tube, I know, can you imagine. . . ? I came across L’Eroica Britannia which will be taking place in June 2014 in the Peak District in England. This is the very first time this exciting event has been in the UK, and I fully intend to take part. In fact, I just recieved an email informing me I am one of the first 500 to register and so will be able to qualify for the early bird rate of £55. Its very exciting, and I think it will suit my bicycle, and myself a whole lot more.
