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.

Tips for Newbies

I'd like to draw attention to the "Tips for Newbies" sticky thread in the racing sub-forum:

Tips for Newbies

I added a few new things today. As always, tips from people who actually know what they're doing (i.e. not me) will help make it a better thread.

I re-read it today. There's some good stuff there if you're new to cyclocross, and especially if you aren't really a racer but just want to have some fun in the dirt.
