Sir Chris Hoy to lead festivities at Eroica Britannia at Goodwood this August

Eroica Britannia is pleased to announce that Sir Chris Hoy will be joining a host of other legendary cycling names at the world-famous cycling lifestyle festival at its new home this August. Goodwood will host the two-day festival on 6-7 August

Chris Hoy led the Eroica Britannia ride out at Goodwood Revival Festival in September 2021 to celebrate the move of the event to Goodwood. He said of the event, “Eroica Britannia is a must for every cycling enthusiast. The fantastic backdrop of Goodwood and the South Downs will take the event to new heights and add to what is already an event on so many cyclist’s bucket list.”

Chris Hoy is also joined by 1982 UCI Road World Championship winners Guiseppe Saronni and Mandy Bishop, who won the championships at Goodwood. Further names will be announced ahead of the event, with all involved in leading out the family rides around the motor circuit, judging the best in show awards and taking part in the rides on the Sunday across the Goodwood Estate and South Downs National Park.

The festival is a celebration of Sussex and cycling’s glorious past, with cycling exhibits, on track races, family and twilight cycling sessions around Goodwood’s famous motor circuit, alongside a selection of the best food and drink Sussex has to offer.

On the Sunday, cyclists can saddle up on pre-1987 steel framed bikes and vintage cycling kit and enjoy one of three epic rides across the South Downs, starting and finishing at Goodwood’s famous Motor Circuit. The 20, 60 and 100-mile routes take in the best of the South Downs National Park, supported by selected destinations who are providing rest and experience stops along the route. These prestigious and highly desirable locations will make Eroica Britannia like no other cycling event the UK has seen before.
