2013 Fools Classic

  • 06 Apr 2013
  • Doylestown, PA

Bucks County's tribute to the Ronde van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders)

The Fools are back for their 7th annual Folie!  What Bucks lacks in pave, we make up for with unsealed roads.   The challenging course is ca 74 miles long of roads less traveled, and will feature +/- 25 sections of dirt, gravel, and hardscrabble roads, comprising ca 23% of the course.  Total elevation gain is ca 6500'.  It is the ideal preparation for those who plan to go to the Tour of the Battenkill on April 13th

All of these roads are maintained public roadways, and are perfectly suitable for standard Road Bikes with Road Tires; tires wider than 23mm are suggested.    Cyclo Cross bikes are welcome, but certainly not required, as most of the ride is on paved roads.  

The ride will have at least 1 classic feed zone, the course will be marked; cue sheets and GPS data will be available.  Goody bags for all participants.  Finishers will be rewarded with the traditional Fools Classic 'trophy".
