Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

New Rider

Hi all, I am looking at getting a new bike, I have a mountain bike which I love for off-road use but would like to do some bike rides - not necessarily competitive right now, but at least starting at 30 miles and up to 100m when I'm ready.

Looking at bikes, not sure if I need a road bike or cyclocross bike. I have had a hybrid before but it seemed every bump in the road I went over I thought I'd break the wheels !!

Since looking in my local bike shop I now see these bikes advertised as cyclocross and they do seem to look stronger than the 'road bikes'

So my question to you is if I purchase something like a KONA Jake or the boardman cyclocross bike as my first bike would this bike be fine for my 30-100m bike rides ?
