Fish Rock is a serious event that is billed as a “Road bike race for people who aren’t afraid of a little hardcore gravel”. The ride is named after the fabled Fish Rock Road in an absolutely 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 all the way 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. The course is well supported with 3 official aid stations. Look for a great post ride celebration hosted by co-sponsor Anderson Valley Brewing.
