The Fool’s Errand VIII

A Fantastic 65km or 120km Cycle Sportive


The Fool’s Errand is back on Sunday 7th April 2019

In 2018 we brought you the Seven Year Itch with two fantastic routes that provided some amazing feedback. In 2019 we plan to show you the eighth wonder of the world with another instalment of the Fools Errand Cycle sportive. Because of the growing popularity of the event and the number of ‘Friends of the Fools’ that join us each year, we have again had to set the event size to a maximum of 600 riders. Please don’t delay in signing up as we don’t want you to miss out.

For those of you who haven’t joined us before The Fool’s Errand is an amazing Kent sportive which allows you to experience the best of the Garden of England; lush farmland, cultivated country estates, fruitful orchards and world-renowned hop gardens!

There are two routes to choose from, our Foolish 65km or Foolhardy 120km routes!

The Foolish 65km – A beautiful route over the Kent Downs. If you’re new to cycling and looking for your first adventure, then this is definitely the route for you.

The Foolhardy 120km – Taking in even more of the stunning Kent countryside and a couple more hills, this is a brilliant route for all cyclists looking for a challenge!

All proceeds from The Fool’s Errand will help to provide life-changing adventures for disadvantaged children and young people. By taking part you will allow children trapped by poverty to experience the outdoors in an inspirational way; building their confidence and creating happier, healthier young people with a brighter outlook for their futures.
