Better act fast if your want to ride the 8th edition of the World Famous Rock Cobbler gravel, dirt and stupidly hard ride in California.

Only 65 registration slots for the 13 February 2021 event in Kern County are still up for grabs, but not for long.

Limited to just 400 riders, this is your chance to safely rub elbows (hopefully not bars) with top name road and gravel riders, including former WorldTour pro Peter Stetina, 1988 Olympian David Lettieri and Belgian Waffle Ride Champion Brian McCulloch at a small grass-roots gravel event.

Although the final course will not be revealed until a few days before, the Cobbler is usually 80-90 miles over and through rough asphalt, gravel, dirt, mud, citrus groves, oil fields, riverbeds (wet and dry) and a house with pop-up brewery to quench your thirst.

Oh, and expect hike-n-bike segments, jumping jacks, pushups, monster-tire flipping and to recite a limerick or two at the top of too-steep-to-ride climb while out of breath.

DNF’s are not the exception, they are the norm.  Most riders are happy to just make it to the finish – alive.

In other words, Rock Cobbler is ridiculously fun, absurdly tough and has all the ingredients for a memorable once-in-a-lifetime gravel cycling experience.
