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".

from what i've heard there aren't too many at that price that are substantially better than any other options.

i like my ritchey speed max but there are also some conti speed king cross at my lbs right now(recycled cycles in seattle) for 25 a piece, which i've heard are better.

i had kenda redline cross supreme on for a few days and hated how they handled on anything but mud. they grip in mud really well. i wasn't expecting much for a ten dollar tire.

Tread pattern depends on course conditions. Since you're in Washington, you probably want a mud tire.

I've heard from a few guys locally who love the Clement Crusade PDX. I use the Michelin Mud2 and am very happy with those.
