Anyone in Florida riding cyclocross?

I'm looking for some people to ride with, any training rides, etc. Somewhere in South Florida would be ideal, but I'm curious to find any rides going on basically anywhere in Florida. I tend to drive around the state quite a bit.

Yeah that seems to be the case. 'Cross has yet to really catch on in Florida, from what I've seen. Maybe there's someone out there, though. I figure since we have some races, then there must be people out there riding during the week somewhere.

Let me know if/when you come down. Hollywood is maybe 20 mins east of me, and there's some great places to ride not far from there. I'm racing 'cross today and tomorrow at Oleta River State Park which is pretty close to Hollywood. Rainy and in the 40's! Perfect for a 'cross race and completely abnormal for South Florida weather.

Thanks for the links. I know about those races (and will be racing them), and have been doing just about every other Florida Cross Series race. I was mainly just looking for other people that are riding 'cross and training for the above races. I've been to Boulder and there are multiple unofficial training rides a week, and was looking for anything like that anywhere in Florida.
