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.

Ride pics

Yesterday I did a nice loop: @61 miles with 6,200 ft of climbing. I was a lot of fun though it would have been more fun with lower gears, my lowest is a 39x26.

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.

Looks like a lot of fun! I would be hurting with my 34-28 gearing! Good Job!
