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.

Haven't started yet this year. Still riding my road bike.
Here's my ebay find (Giant TCX0) at the Yellow River Park a few weeks after I got it (last December).





Here are a few pics of my old bike (Jamis Nova -- sold to a fellow bike commuter last spring) taken at the Georgia Horse Park.




Not quite as exciting as the places some people ride.

Here are a couple of pics from yesterday's ride. I wish I had known about this thread before the ride, I may have taken some better photos.

I tried some stuff much rougher than I'm used to recently... My bike hasn't exploded yet. Just crawled over them, I did rub the rings on a couple crossings though (48/38).
