At a recent local farm auction our heads ruled our hearts when we purchased this traditional Romany horse drawn caravan, which we have christened Rose hip! This horseshoe top Gypsy caravan is known as an "open lock" which means it has no front door but a detachable canvas cover which zips open like a tent and can be completely removed in seconds. At the time it needed a bit of work to bring it up to the high standards that our guests are used to, so I have been busy landscaping the area where it will sit. Meanwhile Felicity has been very ...
Inspired by Eroica Britannia 2016 and as rashly promised in our Eroica blog last year, David and I completed our challenge in style cycling the 25 mile route on our 1930’s tandem! Having written my blog last year, recklessly thinking it would be fun to take part, even joking about cycling two up on a tandem, David got straight on ebay and within 2 days had purchased our vintage tandem – a real shock and surprise to me! For those who haven’t heard of Eroica Britannia before it is billed as ‘The World's Most Handsome Bike Ride’ and it...

David and I spent another brilliant day out at Eroica Britannia - a cycling race with a difference, where fashion and style count for more than stamina and speed. [caption id="attachment_5688" align="alignleft" width="768"] We spotted these lovely ladies![/caption] Eroica is non competitive and the "race" is as much about the fashion, the stunning Peak District views and the coffee and ice cream stops along the way, as it is about the cycling. Eroica is much more than a cycle ride, it's more a way of life, where vintage is the order of the d...
The L’Eroica Britannia is an amazing celebration of cycling combined with vintage lifestyle, and what better place to cycle than the stunning hills of the Peak District National Park! The 3 day cycling festival is held in Bakewell from 19th to 21st June and is based on the original L’Eroica cycle ride held every year in Gaiole, Tuscany, since 1997: a celebration of the “heroic” days of good old-fashioned cycling before carbon fibre, power meters and energy gels.No electric bikes allowed! Do you have a pre 1987 steel road bik...
