Are we still allowed to race CX?

Notices
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.

Are we still allowed to race CX?

Honestly, realizing I can get off my bike and run/walk for 50-100ft has opened up new worlds in my gravel riding. Its not all about the bike. ;-)

That's cool, but it misses the point I was jokingly making.
I have walked over closed bridges where access doesn't allow me to ride- sure that then opens up my route but it also isn't what I was talking about.? As a state who is near the top of the country in unsafe bridges, we have plenty that are closed to vehicles.

Is that what you mean though?

The final local (Vancouver - Fraser Valley) cross race of the season was this past weekend and it was awesome. Tons of photos here; https://www.filipfunk.com/Galleries/Valleycross-2021/
