Eroica Britannia 2015 Review

Returning to Bakewell after a year for the 2nd Eroica Britannia was a bit like coming home. 
Friday evening we booked the Movember Foundation Dinner at the Hassop Station. Welcomed by the local Brass Band we took drinks and niblet in front of the station before taking a seat inside. There we had some interesting talks and enjoyed very good food donated by local suppliers prepared by Oliver Rowe.

 Some impressions from Bakewell.
 Monday we visited Haddon Hall, a Manor originating from the middle ages and "home" for many movies.
I did the 100 miles ride on Sunday. The weather in the morning was quite cold and with some rain and wind. Nevertheless it was a fantastic ride through the valleys and over the peaks of the Peak District. The organisation and guidance was very well and we got plenty of food and beverage. I did stop on some occasions to take a picture or two
One of the countless white roads, Tea Time at Ilam Hall, Bakewell Tarts and sparkling wine in front of Chatsworth House.
