“Stunning countryside, chocolate box villages and an exceptional course in this ‘sportive-perfect’ pocket of hills will form the backbone of the day. But this is The Joker, and it wouldn’t be April Fools Day without a trick or two up our sleeves!

The Joker will tempt you and test you. He’ll throw down Jokers Challenges; extra hills and hurdles off of the main course to really prove your mettle. And he’ll offer you Fools Choices; free and easy short cuts that may just be too good to be true! Make the right choices and you’ll have the ride of the season! Misjudge his smile and you’ll fall into his traps…

Jokers Challenges – Optional extra loops on the course form the Jokers Challenges. Built around the toughest hills, or other less obvious hurdles, The Jokers Challenges will build up your ride mileage for the day that’ll be credited on your results, and also earn you a special souvenir Joker playing card for every one you complete!

Fools Choices – Ever felt tempted to take a short cut on a sportive? The Joker doesn’t mind, he’ll even show you the way! Fools Choices around the route will offer you ways to carve major chunks of mileage and climbing off of your ride, and we won’t even tell anyone. You’ll still be counted as a full route finisher at the end of the day. The catch? Tarmac may be in short supply on the short cuts; you may need to bring your best pave and CX skills along for the ride!”
