What is so special about cyclocross? I like that it keeps me from getting too round in the fall and winter. I like that it is all a little crazy riding around in the rain and mud on skinny little tires. I like the feeling of pushing the limits and going past them on a bike.
Most of all though I like the culture and community cyclocross season brings. I’ve always had friends who race mountain bikes or road bikes and the fall cyclocross season is when we everyone has the chance to come together at one event. The racing can still be intense but almost everyone is friendly and having a good time.
