The Fools Classic is Kermesse Sport's original Mixed Surface Ride, and is one of the oldest spring classic themed rides in the US.

Despite being founded long prior to the Revolutionary War, Bucks County doesn't have much in terms of cobblestone roads, but due to its rural nature, there are many unpaved roads of dirt and gravel.

Glaciers carved out what is now the Delaware River, yielding some steep hills leading out of the river valley. These conditions combined with the unpaved roads, lends perfectly to a tribute to the Ronde Van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flanders).

While the route varies year-to-year, the concept is constant; ride a circuit of roads less traveled past picturesque farms, pre-revolutionary stone houses, and take in as many of the local unsealed roads as practical.  The course is always very challenging and has quite a few technical sections.

The unpaved roads are all public roads that are used daily by standard motor vehicles. They are suited for road bikes with normal road tires, though the organizers recommend that you leave the lightweight stuff at home, and highly suggest that tires larger than 23mm will make your ride more enjoyable.
