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.

Sub-9 Gravel Grovel

The 4th Annual Sub-9 Gravel Grovel is just two weeks away!

The Gravel Grovel is the bookend event to the popular Sub-9 Death March ( and we are sure that this year's event is going to be the best one yet! We've recently moved to a whole new venue allowing for more parking, ample camping opportunities and much more. The event begins/ends at the Midwest Trail Ride Horseman's Camp on the western edge of the Hoosier National Forest.

Who will win the coveted custom Brown County stone awards.... will it be a mountain biker? a cyclocrosser or roadie?! You'll have to experience it to find out!

Looks good, I'll try to make it.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
