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.

Bought a Checkpoint SL6 this spring for riding rail trails

I live in Southwestern PA and just finished my yearly biking of the Great Allegheny Passage on my new Checkpoint and had a blast! It is so fast and handles all the trail has to offer very well. Maybe its not a perfect gravel bike but its nearly perfect for rail trails. It has cut my ride time significantly. Only small complaint is that the seat is a bit hard and I may buy another soon.

I've been commuting and riding around on my new ALR5 for the past few weeks. Really liking this bike! Its a little more fun and racey than some of the other gravel bikes i test road.

I must say, i don't love the seat either.
