Cycling Festivals

Cycling fans can look forward to a midsummer feast of festival fun in the Peak District and Derbyshire as the area once again plays host to the stylish three-day Eroica Britannia event - and this year will also welcome stages three and four of the Aviva Women's Tour for the very first time. The events take place over the same weekend and offer the opportunity to come and stay in the area to experience two very different, but complementary events.

Eroica Britannia

Eroica BrtanniaThe third Eroica Britannia festival will again celebrate the 'Best of British' with a three-day celebration of live music, vintage, shopping, food, drink, camping and cycling at Bakewell Showground; with a Swing Night of music and dance and a Last Day of the Proms event to welcome riders back from their 2016 Great British Adventure. This year’s routes – featuring regular local food and drink stops along the way – will attract cyclists from all over the world keen to explore the UK’s first National Park in the Peak District and Derbyshire’s peerless scenery on pre-1987 bikes and in vintage or traditional clothing.

Aviva Women's Tour

Aviva Womens TourAround 100 international riders representing 16 teams will take to the road for stage three of the Aviva Women’s Tour from Ashbourne to Chesterfield on June 17 – passing through some of the area’s key towns and villages, including Buxton, Matlock and the Chatsworth estate, and featuring breathtaking sprint sections along the way.
There’ll be a second chance to see the cyclists in action during stage four from Nottingham to Stoke-on-Trent on June 18, when the race will skirt Derby, between Long Eaton and Swadlincote.
