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.

Daffodils! Spring is coming. Won’t see them for a few weeks up here.

Sounds like a nice ride.

Did a century yesterday with a friend starting at the top of Ramon Crater (world's largest erosion crater) and ending in Eilat in the south of Israel

The bike is ready to go.


Tank practice


That's Jordan over there

Well, it's not Norway but the snows the same.

This was a 30 km ride that spanned gravel, icy hard snow on gravel and crusty sugar snow that felt like loose sand. I was in my granny gear on the horizontal for some of it and could feel the suspension fork bobbing up and down like an icebreaker. Good thing I had Foreigner and Boston on the IPOD!

The 26er is definitely not fast but so far delivers in all sorts of terrain.

Some gravel, some snow today. Actually gravel, mud, ice, crusty snow, sugary snow and slush along a section of the Trans Canada Trail.
A challenging ride that pushed the 2.10 knobbies to their limits.

It is. I call it Overland bike.
Those feed bags are Jannd.
https://www.jandd.com/detail.asp?PRO...OTTLE-GRUB-BAG
They where kind of expensive, $40 each when I bought them, but Jannd was having a 2 for 1 sale so I got 2 for $40.
They are insulated. One I have tube, repair stuff and tools. The other I keep water bottle in, since there are no water bottle mounts on this bike. And they don't interfere with the cables.

on an epic all day ride this past fall I actually used if for food. 2 PB&J sandwiches cut into quarters

I'll even use it in the rain, I just hang it up at home to dry


btw, I dig that you nick named your bike

Please, Please, Please include location with your wonderful pics. I actually wish everyone would include a brief description/location with their pics. Some of us live vicariously through others.

A couple of pics from an obscure corner of the Canadian Prairies.

The Great Sand Hills, SW Saskatchewan, just west of Swift Current. An area of exposed sand that in some places forms dunes.
Fat tires recommended.
