The size of the field has been set at a maximum of 600 riders so please don’t delay in signing up and missing 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!
