Cyclocross Season

                        Cyclocross Bikes and Gear in stock from Bianchi, Giant, Scott, Clement, Continental, Kenda, and WTB

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.

Big John hits the deck, pulls a spin a rooney, and heads back into the race!

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).

Also close to home, the Sacramento Cyclocross Series begins its 16th year in 2014 with a focus on great courses and fun, fast racing.
