The Heroes guided tour is based on the journey of the medium route of Eroica Britannia held in June in the Peak District National Park. Starting in the medieval market town of Bakewell you’ll adventure on our fine retro bicycles along the iconic Monsal Trail, incorporating incredible viaducts and tunnels of the former Midland Railway Line. Pedal back in time bygone lanes and enjoy breathtaking scenery over the hilly White Peak landscape. You’ll take a break for lunch in the delightful village of Hartington – a Peak District gem – famous for its cheese shop, village green and pond. Your amazing journey will take in heritage sites and a picturesque view of the world famous Chatsworth House. Throw your remaining strength into the climb back to Bakewell. You’ll achieve a sense of satisfaction and be rewarded with a Bakewell Pudding for your efforts!
