A Very Handsome L'Eroica Britannia
L'Eroica Britannia took place on 20th-22nd June in Bakewell, Derbyshire.
A posh festival without a portaloo or pair of wellies in sight? Sound too good to be true?
Set for the first time in the beautiful backdrop of Bakewell- famed for its puddings and not to be confused with the tarts- the three day festival culminated in a cycle race on the Sunday, with a 30-, 50- or 100-mile route option. The use of pre- 1987 bikes and the cyclists’ attire helped to create a retro continental feel, as a nod to the first ever L’Eroica, held in Italy in 1997.
Exposed was on hand to dish out some Lush prizes for the Best Dressed Festival Goer category, both male and female, with the dapper gents proving just why this is billed as the most handsome bike race in the world.
With handlebars (both bikes and moustaches) and vintage lycra a plenty, the festival set up Brittania as a Tour De Force for the Tour De France!
