Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking 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.

Who is racing this weekend? (Nov 2-3)

OKAY you freaks! What races going on this weekend? We've got the Washington State Championships over in Spoke-ane (Spokane) this Sunday.....

Daytime highs are at 40 degrees....Chilly. Yea, I know for 60% of the country that's a balmy heat wave, but but I choose NOT to live in the snow for a reason! I've become a wuss!

A flat & no doubt windy one to the west of London. Weather here at the mo is 'changeable' according to the man in front of the map. I have a wedding bash the night before, so, well, I'll keep you posted!

We have a race in Vermont this weekend, it would require an eight hour round trip drive for my 30 minutes of fun...but well worth it. Anyone from the Boston, MA area headed up to the VT race?

We have a race this saturday in Marietta Georgia. they are saying High of 47 but they are always wrong so it should be nice around 60 degrees is my bet.

BTW it is 10 -15 minutes from my house. Can't get more convienient than that.

Rode the 'flat, windy one', was a very good course, very fast.
Lesson 1; improve start (I warm up hard and fast but still seem to be left behind!)
Lesson 2; the day you leave your spare wheels in the car will be the day that you puncture (no helpers, unfortunately, so a mid race detour to the car park )
Still, was good fun, hope you all had good races.

I was unable to recover from the concert I went to...pretty much wasted the day with a hangover. Good work racing!! Hopefully I am going up to Keene, New Hampshire for a race this upcoming Saturday. Good luck.
