Fish Rock

April 1, 2023

 

Fish Rock is a serious event billed as a “Road bike race for people who aren’t afraid of a little hardcore gravel.” Picked as one of our best gravel cycling events in California, the ride is named after the fabled Fish Rock Road in a stunning region of Northern California.  There’s only one route for Fish Rock.  It’s 72.4 miles and +9,670 feet of elevation gain.  The route starts in Boonville, heading west over the beautiful low-traffic Mountain View Road to the Pacific Ocean.  After turning inland, the route tackles Fish Rock turning to gravel and pitching upwards.  For the next 25 miles, you’ll find yourself on very remote, challenging up/down gravely terrain.  The event producer, Bike Monkey, recommends you ride a road bike with 28c tires or bigger.  Although the course is mostly road, 14 miles of Fish Rock is time-consuming gravel.  Some riders are more comfortable riding a fast gravel bike with treaded tires.  Three official aid stations will support the course.  Look for a great post-ride celebration hosted by co-sponsor Anderson Valley Brewing.

Bike Monkey produces some of the best road and gravel events in California and the greater Southwest, including Levi’s Gran Fondo; Rebecca’s Private Idaho; Stetina’s Pay DirtTruckee Dirt Fondo; Fish Rock; Heart of Gold Gravel; Hammer Road Rally; and the Bovine Classic.
