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.

Unfortunately since my vocal chords were severed by the disc rotor, I was unable to tell anyone what happened. In fact, this is the first time I have been able to share my tale with others.

If you want to join my advocacy group, I'm pushing the bike industry to remove all of these incredibly dangerous disc and rim brakes from their bikes. We need to return to the safe old days of spoon brakes.
