Madame Bollinger’s Bicycle at Eroica Britannica

On the hottest weekend of the year so far, Champagne sparkle was brought to the Peak District by Madame Lily Bollinger’s recently restored bicycle. Taking to two wheels for Eroica Britannica 2017, ‘The World’s Most Handsome Bike Ride’, Bollinger’s UK Director Victoria Carfantan pedalled the course on the original Peugeot bicycle, believed to date back to the 1940’s, which Madame Bollinger would ride through the vineyards every morning.Victoria took on the 25 mile route which wended through some of the most scenic parts of the Peak District. The blue Peugeot, kindly offered for the race by Madame Bollinger’s great nephew Arnould d’Hautefeuille, performed admirably on its first outing in over 50 years, although modern brakes might have been preferable for some of the steeper descents!

Champagne Bollinger was an official partner of Eroica Britannica 2017 and served Bollinger Special Cuvée from an appropriate Bollinger Bicycle Bar in the Eroica Britannia HQ Garden, quenching the thirst of riders and spectators alike.
