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 :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

How many roles does your cyclocross bike play?

Commuter, touring, racing off-road, training on-road.....
I should share that I ask because I am really considering purchasing one and want to know just how versatile this type of bike can be.

Mine Gunnar Crosshairs has been a road bike:

A touring bike:

A stripped down fixie:

A bike for carrying a child seat (unfortunately I don't have a pic with the seat installed):

A trailer tower:

It's also been an off road fixie, a drop bar fixed, etc. Strangely, never actually a cross bike (by me, the PO was a cross racer). Maybe someday.

It spends most of its days as a geared road bike.

Changing bikes around this way is certainly cheaper than buying new. More fun, too.
