Picturesque Millerton Lake in Friant, California will play host the second annual food and music festival with craft beer, food and live tunes!

In support of the Edward O. Lund Foundation for aspiring Fresno State University art students. The Hammer Road Rally is a serious ride celebrating the love of adventure on two wheels.

This ride is perfect for your adventure road bike with 25c or larger tires. If you're opting for the gravel options, most road cyclists will be comfortable on 28c tires, and are recommended. But if you're not comfortable with gravel descents on a road bike, you might even want to throw on some tires with a minimal amount of tread. To each his or her own. Please inquire if this doesn't answer it for you!

Our "Road Rally" format introduces the perfect mix of competition and camaraderie. We score specific "segments" through a single day. That means you can ride for hours but only race for short periods of time where it's fun and challenging. The best cumulative times across all segments for the day are deemed the winners. Individual and combined segments are awarded.

There will be awards given to the top 3 in varying age and gender categories. As many as 18 awards will be given out for cumulative overall times. Your times on each segment will be added together and ranked amongst your age/gender category.

Each podium place will receive a custom Hammer Road Rally medal and additional prizes for their efforts.

One of the best parts about the ride is that you can cover a huge distances, tackle big Sierra climbs and spend lots of hours in the saddle with the support you need to do it all with relative ease. We provide staffed and stocked aid stations with great food, on-course and roving support and marshaling and periodic traffic control to make an epic day on the bike fun and memorable.
