Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) 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 : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Cyclocross Magazine?

Cyclocross Magazine?

I'm a big magazine reader... bikes, gardening, cooking, whatever. I bought a back-issue of Cyclocross a few weeks back. Looks like a quality mag, nice photos and journalism. Even though I don't race 'cross, it had some gravelbike stuff as well. If the price is right I may try it for a year.

Thoughts on this mag? Is it worth the price?

Same here, I just can't get into "reading" magazines on digital media. If it's anything like what they post on their website, I'd say it's worth it.

I started reading it in the early days. It was a very good mag. But took a serious turn towards competition only the last few years. So if you don't race there is very little content that's relavent. Hope it helps.

Even though it's not totally cx centric, I like reading Bicycle Times. They have interesting articles and have features on gravel bikes.

I actually got a chance to read through it quite a bit this past weekend. The above poster is right, its about 85% competition content, which is fine. Its a good read, but a bit pricey for me. If I competed in CX, I'd subscribe, though.
