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.

Finally got a real gravel ride in, although 60/40 on the surface. Need some weight reduction on the Cube.

Can you share how this sort of a route view was created? I'd LOVE to be able to create such a view for some of our rides or to plan trips with.

Finally got this build about wrapped up, and a nice enough day to go for a ride. I feel pretty good about the stem height but committing to cutting a carbon steerer scares me. Not sure why, I’ve cut many aluminum ones. I also realized I should have left a little more hose for the front brake.

Here's a few from our Sulphur Mtn club ride, last week. Its a 45 mile ride, 3200' climbing, with 14 miles of dirt fire road from Ventura, over the mountain, down into Ojai and back on the Ojai trail bike path.


With free range cattle we crossed 5 or 6 of these.

My '73 Raleigh Super Course Eroica/gravel bike.

Shade break, it was over 90° in November in SoCal.


View from the top.




Heading home on the Ojai bike path.

I see seven people all saying "No, you go first". Looks like a fun feature to ride. In daylight.
