CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Valley Ford to Elephant Rock

Ride 1.5 miles gaining 435’ at 5.3% average grade (5.6% climb only)

Climb summary by PJAMM’s Bob Amiral, Bodega Bay, CA

This section of the Valley Ford Franklin School Road can be included in several different Coastal Zone rides.  This one started from the Cristo Running Fence Memorial Wall, in the hamlet of Valley Ford, all the way to Dillon Beach Road and back.  This climb is the most significant on this road and has sweeping views of the inland hills and estuaries in both the Southern Sonoma and Northern Marin Coastal Zones.    Many roads can be found in this area of Northern California and this one, in particular, is great to include as the pavement is mostly well maintained and the traffic is very light.
