Grazie !


We’d just like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to see us at Eroica Britannia this weekend.

It was really great to meet people that follow us on Twitter and Facebook, old and new customers and hear stories about all your cycling adventures.

I think everyone involved with the event agreed it was a roaring success and we’ll definitely try and be back next year with our very own tent.

The next event we’re going to be at is the Tour de France finish at Harrogate on July 5th. We’ll be at the Harrogate Football ground which is only a few minutes away from the finish. We look forward to seeing you there.

all the best + ride safe

All aboard for the Eroica Britannia


We’re pleased to announce that we’re having a stall in the vintage emporium at the Eroica Britannia in June.

We’ll be there on the Friday and Saturday. (On the Sunday we’ll be off on one of our vintage bikes riding the long route).

The event is based around Bakewell showground – only a dozen miles from Velotastic’s HQ so it would be plain rude not to attend.


If you are thinking of coming up and having a go at the Eroica, why not stay a few extra days and explore some more of the Peak District National Park. You could even have a crack at our MiniMe Challenge that starts and finishes in Bakewell too.

Back to the Future

We’re getting the feeling 2014’s going to be a big year for cycling.

The Tour is coming to Yorkshire (and a little bit of Derbyshire and the South), the Eroica‘s coming to the Peak District and hopefully cycling will be recognised as our national sport (well one of the few we’re any good at).

Velotastic are also planning to hit the road during the summer months and be at a few of the events. Admittedly, when it comes to the Tour – we’ll probably be by the side of the road on Holme Moss cheering the riders on !

One event that we’ve just booked our spot on is the Chiltern Cycling Festival. It is going to be held on July 13th in Amersham and looks a cracking event. Amongst the things going on include a sportive, a vintage bike run and a hill climb.

Even though it’s only October we’re looking forward to next summer already – we just hope the weather holds.
