A road bike race with some hardcore gravel.
Choose your weapon wisely. Fish Rock is named after the fabled road that makes this race unique. The event starts and finishes in Boonville, California, rolls straight up and over steep, paved terrain to the coast, bombs down Highway 1, and then turns inland for a giant gravel ascent back to Boonville.
Awards are given to the top 3 men and women in various age categories. There's just one route, and people don't tell very many jokes.
There's only one route for Fish Rock. It's 72.4 miles and 9,670 feet of elevation gain. The record is somewhere just under four hours. The course features 4 official aid stations.
We recommend you ride a road bike with 32mm tires or bigger. The course consists of mostly road with a 14 mile long, time-consuming gravel section called Fish Rock. Some people are more comfortable riding a fast gravel bike with treaded tires. It's a question of what makes you feel more comfortable, and comes down to personal preference.
