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.

Belgian Waffle Ride

So who's doing this on Sunday? Tire choice has been driving me nuts in preparation for it since it it has a lot of road riding.

Unfortunately for me, I'm not doing it this year, but I've done the Wafer twice. Both times I rode 700x30 Challenge Strada Bianca tires (tubed). Both Waffle and Wafer are mostly road, so a fast and durable tubeless 28-32 tire should be ideal.

It looked like a ripper. Cool to see the pros getting into gravel.
