L'Eroica is coming to the UK. L'Eroica Britannia, the only approved licensee in the UK to use the L'Eroica name, will be held June 22, 2014, in the Peak District National Park. The official website is www.eroicabritannia.co.uk.
The L'Eroica Britannia route (there will be three routes of 35, 55 and 100 miles) will be challenging, just like in Tuscany and covers the beauty of the Peak District National Park. In July, a representative of L'Eroica came to verify the planned program, ride part of the Monsal Trail, and endorse the project:
