What is Cyclocross?
Cyclocross is a form of bicycle racing. Races typically take place in the fall and winter and consist of many laps of a short (1-2 mile) course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstruction. Races are generally between 30 minutes to an hour with the distance varying depending on conditions.

  • Race 1: October 8th
