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.

You're welcome. barretcsv came up with the change of name idea, in the end while I was thinking on how to incorporate you gravel grinders and where to give you a home, and his suggestion made sense. We're happy to accommodate where we can.

Thank you!

I rarely ride just on asphalt and this forum pretty accurately describes what I am up to.

Cool, I wondered how I'd missed this. Seems like this had become the "gravel riding and people who were thinking about buying a 'cross' bike" forum anyways.
