We didn't even give Eric Benson a week to decompress after the 2018 Eroica California ride, before inviting him to join us to recap the event and talk about the L'Eroica event series worldwide and the concept of vintage bike rides. As he put it, "the beauty is in the fatigue," right? From the pictures we've seen of the scenery along the routes and the incredible vintage bikes that turn out, the Eroica California is a ride that deserves to be on everyone's bucket list!
As Eric mentions, there are multiple ride length options with stops along the way serving wine and homemade whole food options for riders. They also hold a festival serving a large meal and host vintage bike exhibitors for you to peruse bikes and bike parts from the era. What a fun celebration of the machines that we all love so much.
Check out the 2018 ride and keep tabs on the 2019 announcements at their website: https://www.eroicacalifornia.com/. You can also give them a follow on Instagram at: @eroica_california for some beautiful photos of the event.
