Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

Welcome to the Black Fork! This early season gravel road race and ride will test your spirit, legs, and lungs and is perfect for Mountain Bikers, Cyclocross Racers, Adventure Cyclists and Gravel Junkies itching for a challenge.  The three route options near Loudonville, Ohio are almost entirely (70%) on gravel roads and have varying degrees of climbing.

The 23 mile route has just three big climbs, lots of rollers and great views for participants who may be new to gravel grinding or don't have the legs and lungs to tackle the longer, more challenging distances.  

Our 30 mile route has seven long, steep climbs that will test your strength (both mentally and physically), fast and furious downhills that will make you pucker, and an occasional smooth roller that will put a smile on your face.

And our 54 mile race route is for the advanced adventure junkie who just can't get enough gravel. It has 10 big climbs that will test the strongest racers.  Regardless of which route you choose, none are easy so you'll definitely have earned your beer at the finish!
