The world-famous BMC Rock Cobbler is a stupidly hard ride bordering on a race. It was conceived by drunken madmen…on a ride…then on barstools…late in the night. The Pebbler is less stupidly hard but still a true challenge. As always we are passionate and driven to showcase dirt trails, roads and things that are neither. Shenanigans abound. We promise a unique, challenging route of lots o’ dirt and everything from MTB level stuff to easy gravel fun….In a very Bakersfield way.

As is tradition, the final routes, other details, updates, rules and news will be shared with registered riders.


The Cobbler will be roughly about and around 80ish miles 5500—6500 ft of elevation gain and the Pebbler half of that, roughly. Having fun is a must. You might meet Tacoman, cross a river, suck your thumb, cuss at us but you WILL hike with your bike and pedal…a lot…We promise an adventure!


Both routes are designed to be a challenge on a gravel/cross bike, ideally ?tted with some FINE IRC tires. Choose your width and tread carefully, we throw it all at ya. Mountain bikes OK! Road bikes, bad idea!


•    There are no categories but we do award the first male and female Finisher of each ride with an extra special gift.
•    This is NOT a race, it is a damn challenging ride (but ride as fast as you wish!).
•    The Cobbler is hard. You must make it to the final SAG stop by 4:30 pm or we reserve the right to haul you in.


•    Stramler Park, 4003 Chester Ave, Bakersfield, CA 93301

•    Saturday Feb 11th, breakfast 6-8 am, roll out First wave 8:30 am SHARP
•    4-5 Wave starts, 5 min apart…you will be given your wave at reg OR in advance


When you finish (if you finish) you will know why it’s called ROCK COBBLER!
