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.

The house across the street from this is like 3000sq', has a pond in the back yard, and has a barn plus multiple tree houses.
Crazy differences across from one another.

Did a hilly gravel day ride through a national prairie preserve with Buffalo and hit a couple level B roads too.

80% of Iowa was once tall grass prairie. Now, just .1% is tall grass prairie. One tenth of one percent.

Joined my hubby on a gravel ride to lunch and home. Took the path along the floodway around our city. Scenery doesn’t change much on this trail!

Riding along the Deschutes River Trail in Oregon. It's goathead season here, so running tubeless is mandatory.

Nice, downtube42 ! I was just on the CZ trail on Thursday. Got drizzled on the whole time, but it was a great day. I'm excited about the new trail segment that gets you into Vernonia, which I got to ride for the first time.

Nice! I rode it from Scappoose to Vernonia and back on Saturday. Actually parked on Suavie Island so another 9 miles at each end. I dodged most of the rain, but the trail was a bit of a mess. The MTB was a good choice given conditions, but the lack of fenders, uh, caused some blowback. People sure were looking at me funny as I rolled through Scappoose.

One of my regular shorter rides from home, to the top of Cherry Canyon, La Canada CA. A good climbing workout. Super fun network of fire roads (some really steep sections) with some swoopy singletrack which I usually hit on the way down.

Rode 300 miles on the GAP and C&O this week. Unfortunately temps were very cold at night (mid 30's) and I had my summer sleeping bag. Threw in the towel when rain hit the area yesterday.
