    The road racing scene will conclude early September, but the Cyclocross season is getting started this coming weekend and usually continues through November/December. This will be my first season paying any attention to it, but from what I hear, Cyclocross around here is pretty active.

    If the month ends in 'ber' and your in the PNW then it's cross time.

    Yes, you have captured Seattle's weather perfectly, except that thunderstorms are not that common (doesn't get warm enough)! Also, you need to be aware that weather reports will talk about 'sun breaks' .

    The leaves don't really change colour, they just fall off and turn into soggy masses. The bigleaf maples are notorious for trapping unwary cyclists.

    You'll see some of the maple's turn around mid-late September. Seattle is absolutely gorgeous during early fall.

    there will probably be a halloween-related alleycat, too.

    Bike events in Seattle in October? Yeah, with fat tires and full suspension. MTB is where it's at when the weather turns to crap! Check out BBTC.org for a ride calendar. Otherwise, check out MTBR.com and Ridemonkey.com in the regional sections for MTB rides. Besides, if you ride MTB your shoes will be caked with mud, instead of soaked in water, which dries quickly and comes off when whacked against a tree.

    It's better to burn out than fade away...or slip out of your pedal and face plant on the side of the road!!!

    Nothing beats getting muddy whilst mountain biking . And Puget Sound provides lots of good places to get muddy .

    one of the nicer rides

    One of the nicer rides in the fall is the Ellensburg century, I don't believe it has ever rained on this ride.
    It's a pretty quick hump from Seattle, bring tights, leg and arm warmers, and a wind jacket.
