This April we are proud to be supporting a Kent Spring Classic.  After Hardening the FIVE Up! in 2016, we are now inviting you all to come along and enjoy The Joy of SIX! On the 6th edition of the Fool’s Errand

We're massively behind this event as it's not crazy money and its going to a charity that we believe does brilliant work. We ride bikes in beautiful countryside day in day out but over 35% of the child population of the UK has never been to the countryside; Wide Horizons is working hard to change this.

New Year – new routes! This year the Fool’s Errand team have refreshed the routes with a focus on the Joy of Cycling, incorporating SIX sweeping descents totalling over 40km in distance on their Foolhardy 120km route.  For those of you who like a hill then don’t worry ‘What goes down, must go up!’ so there’ll be some Kent classics including Vigo Hill, Red Hill and Puddledock Lane and Toys Hill. 

Anyone who signs up to the Fool’s Errand by midnight on Tuesday 14th February 2017 will be entered into a prize draw for the chance to win a 12 month BETTER Health and Fitness UK leisure all-inclusive membership worth more than £650.

We've always found the Fool’s Errand is a friendly event for both experienced riders and those new to sportive and it has two route options to choose from - take on either the Extremely Foolhardy 120km or the Slightly Foolish 65km on fully marked routes. There’ll be on the day timing so that you can find out how long it took you to complete the ride, mechanical support along the route, a feed station half way so that you can stop and re-energise as well as refreshments before and after the event including a free bowl of the famous Fool’s Chilli at the finish line!

And though it's to raise money they are, exclusively for Maison Du Vélo customers, able to offer a 10% discount on the entry fee for The Fool’s Errand. Just quote MDV16 when you register to get your 10% discount.

It is £26 (£23.40 with the discount) to enter the 130km route and £16 (£14.40 with the discount) to enter the 60km route. Upon registration you will also receive a voucher for a 10% discount on accessories, clothing, helmets and shoes in both our Reigate shop as well our new Maison Du Vélo in Cranleigh.

So let a little foolishness into your life this April with the Joy of SIX!
