OCTOBER 19, 2019

Shaver Lake, CA

A ride TO RECALIBRATE YOUR SOUL.

Big changes coming to Hammer Road Rally!


Hammer Road Rally is a ride with options for all ability levels. The largest route, the Hammer, is an epic ride with one particular climb you'll never forget. Click here to learn more about the routes we have to dish up this October 19th. Everything begins and ends at Shaver Lake.

We have made some major changes to this event by moving deeper into the Sierra. With a new start/finish venue at Shaver Lake, we'll take you up and over Kaiser Pass, exceeding 9,100' above sea level. If that's not enough, we've included two genuine gravel road segments to grab your adventurous spirit. Both hard and extra-hard routes will be timed with awards going to the top competitors in various age/gender categories.

The Routes

Easyish

Not Timed

27.5mi + 2,885'

Ride your bike along historic Dinkey Creek Road on our non-competitive, idyllic 20 mile bike ride. It features a fair bit of climbing, a beautiful classic -- you'll share the return route with lead riders who will be heading back on the same road with you to the finish.

Road bikes with road tires are recommended for this route. There are no gravel roads on this option.

Medium

Not Timed

34mi + 3,383'

This route features perfect road grades and enough challenge to keep you happy even if you're a very strong cyclist looking for an easier day.

A road bike with 28-32c tubeless road tires are recommended. We consider cyclocross or gravel tires bit overkill.

⚠️Includes 8 miles of gravel descending with some rough patches and potholes. Just pay attention and you'll be fine.

Hard

TWO TIMED SEGMENTS!

53mi + 5,897'

No sticks are shaken at a 53 mile bike ride with nearly 6,000' of elevation gain. Riders will make their way to Huntington Lake before turning south and making your way gradually back to the finish.

A road bike with 28-32c tubeless road tires are recommended. We consider cyclocross or gravel tires bit overkill.

Hammer*

ONE MASSIVE TIMED SEGMENT!

85mi + 9,175'

The real deal: The Hammer features an absolutely massive 15 mile long gravel climb from Stump Springs Road to Kaiser Pass at 9,196' above sea level.

THIS IS A SERIOUSLY BIG DAY.

A road bike with 28-32c tubeless road tires are recommended. We consider cyclocross or gravel tires bit overkill.

⚠️Features nearly 30 miles in two segments of gravel road. The second segment is as described in the "medium" and "hard" routes.
