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.

Help in Getting Started

Hey All,

I've developed an interest in 'cross, but have no idea how to get going in the sport. Do you all have some books or sites that might give me more insight into the sport, the bikes, the courses, etc? It seems like an awesome sport, and great crosstraining for the road.


Thanks,
Erin
