2014 has been a phenomenal year for cycling in Folsom. We loved supporting the Amgen Tour of California Stage Race in Folsom, Bike to Work events, May is Bike Month, The Prairie City Race Series, Folsom Cyclebration, the Sacramento Cyclocross Series, and the bike path, trail, children and family programs that get more of our community out riding their bikes. As we celebrate with our families, we're grateful for the fantastic riding opportunities in our community--thank you so much for your support and have a wonderful holiday!
Northern California cyclocross racing suits all ages and all rider abilities. From Never-Evers to National and International competitors, the different race series suit any and all styles of riding.
To get started, a cyclocross bike isn't mandatory--a mountain bike will work fine--and while it doesn't hurt to have a can-do attitude and not take yourself too seriously, no, it's not necessary to shave your legs.
You might want to practice getting on and off your bike. Quickly. While laughing.
Besides being a great workout and dramatically improving your bike handling skills, Cyclocross becomes the meeting ground for roadies and mountain bikers and all-round riders who just want to have fun.
Close to home, Folsom Rodeo CX puts on a weekly cyclocross race Wednesday nights at the Rodeo Fairgrounds starting September 3rd. Fantastic course set-ups, superb timing, and a great introduction for beginners. The races are split by age and ability level and are designed for all levels of riders. Cyclocross combines the best of road biking and mountain biking, builds power, endurance, and anaerobic capacity (and moral courage when it's raining or snowing).
Folsom has the best biking--maps, rentals, fitting, repair--it's all good at Bicycle Planet!
