    Cleveland Cobbles

    It’s that time of year again. The spring classics are starting, and that means it's time for Cleveland Cobbles. Cleveland Cobbles is an unsupported group ride of roughly 40 miles through Old Brooklyn and Tremont areas of Cleveland linking as many brick roads together as possible with some fun hill climbs or muur if you prefer. 

    We will roll out of the E 49th st. Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation at 8:00am.


    All are welcome, this is a public event. All skill levels. However; there will be some hills, and as we found out the other year we lost quite a few people during and after the second hill which is about 5 miles in. So make sure you are able to climb some. In the same vein as the Classics, this ride will be held rain, shine, or snow. Any bike is welcome; however, this route will be friendly to cross bikes. I am throwing some dirt into this edition. You will be able to skip the dirt sections, but who wants to do that? Be prepared for repairing flats. This route is notorious for flats.

    Calling all Mountain Bikers, Gravel Grinders, Cyclocross Enthusiast, and Fat Bike Fanatics

     It's RACE TIME!


    Loudonville, Ohio

    For the first time the Black Fork is a Race!  This early season gravel road race and ride will test your spirit, legs, and lungs and is perfect for Mountain Bikers, Cyclocross Racers, Adventure Cyclist and Gravel Junkies itching for a challenge after a long winter of spinning on the trainer.  Participants will get a glimpse of some of the same route as the legendary Mohican 100 National Ultra Endurance Mountain Bike Race and will have an adventure you just can’t get on pavement.  The three route options near Loudonville, Ohio are almost entirely 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 original 30 mile route has seven long, steep climbs that will test your strength, 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!

    For the 54 mile race, the top three overall finishers will receive a cash payout and award medals.  The top three finishers in each age category will receive recognition at the awards ceremony.  We also have a King and Queen of the Mountain Award for the first guy and gal to reach the top of our second major climb (on Big Hill Road).

    "Loved the route, hard technical gravel, and a beer handed to me as I crossed the finish line"

    "I just finished the Black Fork Gravel Grinder and highly recommend it for next year. It was very well run, good communication and course maps/signs. Hills were tough but good training ride for Michigan Mountain Mayhem. Winter Warriors should seriously consider."
