We would like to thank the passionate and honourable Eroici who attended the first edition of Eroica Germania CCE. The event was a milestone: nearly 300 riders came together to share two days of cycling and companionship in the beautiful Rheingau region for the very first time. Some fun facts: 17 countries were in attendance, and among these riders 60% rode the long course. In addition, score of bratwurst and flammkuchen were enjoyed, as well as many hundred litres of Riesling – and that’s only counting the Italians. 
Your thorough and honest feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and we gratefully acknowledge every constructive suggestion. But 2018 was only the beginning. We feel energized, humbled and determined to improve next year, and with your enthusiastic support, we will grow Eroica Germania CCE to one of the biggest events in the Eroica calendar. Please contact us with any questions, comments or enquiries to our e-mail address,and we can’t wait to see you again in August 2019. For now, please enjoy this event gallery from Eroica photographer Paolo Penni Martelli.

The starting point of Eroica Germania will be at the Baron-Knyphausen winery in the town of Eltville.
The Rheingau in general and the Draiser Hof are particularly well connected and easy to reach.
The largest German airport Frankfurt / M. is 50 km away, from there you can easily reach Eltville by train via Wiesbaden. The Rheingau offers a number of small campsites. Wiesbaden, the nearest big city, is only 20km away.
