Cyclocross – Cycling for CrossFitters and Kettlebells

By: 1 Comment

Have any of you ever heard of the sport called Cyclocross RacingImagine doing a mud run, then imagine you’re also riding a bike – and that’s pretty darned close! Cyclocross Races involve the riding of many laps of a short (1.5–2  mile) course featuring pavement, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry the bike while navigating the obstruction and remount. See? It’s just like CrossFit!! No, really, check it out!

You have to be interested after that! Anyway, even if you aren’t interested in participating in these races as an athlete, they are almost as much fun to watch as they are to race! I have personally enjoyed quite a few mornings enjoying a nice warm cup of coffee while watching the cyclists ride, climb, hop, slip and roll along the course. It’s great! Check out the calendar here, and go give it a shot!
