The 2023 Fools Classic Randonnée on Saturday May 27 from Bucks County Brewery in Pipersville, PA (near Doylestown).
The Fools Classic is Kermesse Sport’s (& Bucks County’s) original Mixed Surface Ride, and is one of the oldest spring classic themed/gravel rides in the US. We haven’t had the ride scheduled since 2020 due to COVID and loss of our venues, so we’re bringing it back in a simple manner, offering only 1 distance, and organizing it as a self-supported ride, much like the first edition in 2007.
The course is 81 miles long with >6500′ of climbing (according to Ride with GPS) and features 23 miles (28% of the course) of unpaved roads and trails.
Randonnées are long-distance unsupported cycling events, and are part of a long tradition that goes back to the earliest days of the sport. For more information, please see our article, “What is a Randonnée?”, which we published in 2020 during the dark days of the pandemic.
Following the ride, please join us for post ride beverages sponsored by Bucks County Brewery.
