Widehorizons presents 'The Fool's Errand II - More Fool You' Sportive. A spectacular 120km Sportive on 7th April 2013. All proceeds from the event will be used by Widehorizons to fund our work providing life-changing adventure to children and young people. The event will pass by one of our centres, giving you the chance to see the amazing places that we use to inspire and educate young people from, mostly, south-east London.

The route.

The Fool’s Errand Sportive starts and finishes at Hildenborough Village Hall and is mostly on quiet country lanes and roads through the beautiful countryside and picturesque villages of Kent. With the first shoots of spring there couldn’t be a better time to see the glorious sweeping valley views, green hills and distant horizons. The route itself is a challenging 120k with 1500 metres of climbing. Heading west on a fast undulating stretch across the Kent Weald you will cycle past Bough Beech Reservoir and up the notorious Toys Hill. Sweeping down through the Westerham Valley the route soon starts to head east towards Otford and the tough climb up Rowdow. After a gentle descent into the Darenth Valley you will take some short, sharp climbs up onto the top of the North Downs and then heads south-east into the rolling hills along the Medway Valley, finishing at the start point in Hildenborough. One feed/toilet stop in Wrotham at Widehorizons Margaret McMillan House. A hot meal will be provided at the end of the event and there is ample parking nearby.
