Tickets cost £60, with riders able to choose from a 30-mile, 60-mile or 100-mile ride, which must depend on how sturdy your vintage bike is and how restrictive your vintage clothing is.

All ride tickets include entry to the three-day cycling festival based in the Peak District town of Bakewell betweem June 19-21.

Be warned, though, your bike has to be made before 1987 for it to be eligible for the ride, so you can’t take your vintage Team Sky Pinarello.
