Get 2-for-1 tickets to Eroica Britannia, a fun-filled festival of cycling at Goodwood
The family-friendly festival of cycling culture and lifestyle will be set within the iconic Goodwood Motor Circuit and stunning South Downs National Park.
There will be a varied racing programme, cycling exhibits and demonstrations, a funfair, live entertainment and local food and award-winning wine, the festival will have something for all ages.
The event will continue to honour cycling heritage, with three Classic Rides on Sunday August 7 for pre-1987 bikes. With a choice of 20, 60 and 100-mile routes, the Classic Rides will embrace the spirit and camaraderie of the Eroica events that take place across the world each year.
There will also be opportunities to ride on Goodwood’s historic Motor Circuit for both vintage and contemporary bikes as the scope of the cycling festival broadens to create Britain’s biggest celebration of classic and contemporary cycling.
One of the most exciting new developments is the Future Now Zone. Visitors will have the opportunity to test ride the latest models from a number of the industry’s leading bike manufacturers. These taster rides will see prospective customers following in the wheel tracks of past and present motorsport and cycling legends such as Sir Stirling Moss, Jenson Button and Sir Chris Hoy.
The Future Now Zone presents an incredible opportunity to ‘try before you buy’ in a uniquely thrilling environment. Featuring products from brands such as Canyon, Factor, Forme, Moulton, Pashley and Quella, the Future Now Zone will celebrate the bikes of today that will become the collectables of tomorrow.
On top of what is already planned for Eroica Britannia, including the popular Collectors’ Market, Penny Farthing Polo and country fair-style festival, event-goers can expect some exciting new experiences.
Races will include a Path Racer Cup, Folding Bike Race, Single-Speed Race and a One-Lap Dash, plus many more. Riders of all ages will be able to participate in a range of activities and on Saturday evening, the much-loved Twilight Ride will round off a special day on the 2.4-mile Motor Circuit.
Other highlights across the weekend include appearances from cycling icons, including Sir Chris Hoy, Pippa York and Jody Cundy, along with 1982 UCI Road World Champions Mandy Jones and Giuseppe Saronni.
