EVENT SUMMARY

The smart place to be on April 7th will be at the Joker – a unique season opening sportive with a wicked streak!

ROUTE INFORMATION

A choice of 2 route options are available –

“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 coming hot on the heels of April Fools Day, it has 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

You just enter the Full route or Short route, but you’ll get a host of extra options, challenges and choices along the way. These will all be clearly signed, and how many of them you take on is up to you. We’ll work out and record your ride stats at the end of the day.

On the route find Jokers Challenges, taking you onto bigger and tougher sections of the course (including the legendary cobbles of Gold Hill), plus some Fools Choices; shortcuts you can take without penalty, although these may not be as simple as they seem.”
