  1. Some of my mates have ridden Eroica Britannia in 2014 and 2015 but we now intend to bring our old steel racers to the York Rally in 2016. Is anything planned to cater for Eroica refugees like us?

    1. Hi Mick, I’ve passed that on to the committee and we’ll try to get something sorted πŸ™‚ but anyway you’d always find plenty of like-minded people around and rides to go on!

    2. Mick,

      Not specifically for steel racers, but one ‘traditional’ ride that didn’t take place this year was the “Breakfast Ride”, which is a ride of about 60 miles that returns by 1pm on the Saturday. This had to be shelved due to the lack of appropriate ride leaders, who decided to attend an event in Bakewell.

      If anyone, or know of anybody who, feels the challenge of leading such a ride then have not hesitation in let me know.

  2. I have booked an early bird pitch it is a week earlier this year I believe so it might not rain The last week in June it has rained for a decade or more on that particular weekend in York. As last year on the Sunday

  3. Just Booked – see you in June.
    Just a comment on the website.
    It wasn’t clear at first that online bookings would be able to be paid via credit card or PayPal. It would be encouraging if this were clear at the start of the booking page.
    Also if after entering your pitch and address details you click continue shopping it is quite difficult to find your way back to the checkout page. A view cart or Checkout on the menu bar might be helpful.
    One event suggestion – Another LikaBike race. There was one a few years ago and it was great fun to watch.

    1. Thanks Matt – I’ll look into the online shop issues you mention… and thanks for the email too!
      EDIT – “Show cart” button added to the side menu, and campsite page now mentions payment methods πŸ™‚
