What a fantastic weekend away that was.  We packed up our VW camper on Friday morning and headed north to Bakewell.  The inaugural L’Eroica Britannia vintage bike ride and festival was our home for the weekend.

My husband’s vintage Pinarello bicycle was put to the test after he restored it to venture on its first tough 100 mile ride.  There were plenty of things to keep the non riders entertained with the beautiful Bakewell town a few minutes away and a whole host of vintage stalls to tempt.  The Pimms double decker, G&T or champagne bar and local pale ale all added to the festival spirit  A great opportunity for new stationery ideas too with this very ‘on-trend’ scene at present.

Well done to the organisers. Bring on 2015’s event …
