Who knew that cyclocross would be so much fun?!  A few of our friends are participating this year, so we’ve been having a great time cheering them on, trash talking the competition, and laughing at everyone when they fall.  I never said I was nice…

Elisa and I are sorely tempted to race next year, but I think I might be too much of a wimp.  I hear it’s real hard.

Paul is doing a fantastic job of documenting his cyclocross adventures in the Portland area over at Pacific Pedaling

To see what’s happing in the Birmingham area, check out BamaCross.

Here’s some pics of our bois…


Sam won!


Jesse broke his bike!


Alan rocked the sand pit!

Anyone else partaking in Cyclocross fun this year?

    You guys could totally do it! Trust me, there are riders of all skills and abilities, on bikes of all shapes and sizes. Single speed, multi-geared, cargo bikes (yes, there was a Madsen at a couple races with two people…one in the tub!) bmx bikes, cruisers, mountain bikes, welded funky bikes….anyone is welcome, and anyone can do it!

    Really, it’s more fun than I expected it to be. It’s also harder than I thought, but hey, 45 minutes later, it’s over!

    Give it a shot!

    This is NOT where I expected to find cross fans. Remember, cross is only tough if you care about going fast. Also remember that the one in back has the best view of the race.

    Steve-you clearly don’t know us well…we love smack talking, mud flinging and anything that involves bikes and beer. I think cross covers all of those! :) Plus some of our boys are racing, so of course we love it!

    you guys should have seen Anna and I smack talking at softball games…(esp. anna!)

    It’s just a bit of a switch from the Chicago posts. It’d be like me discoursing on bike bells. Hmm…

    Geez, I guess we need a more clear way of distinguishing who is posting what. Anna (me) posted about Cyclocross. Elisa posted about Chicago.

    Not to say that Elisa doesn’t love cyclocross (clearly), or that I’m not interested in fancy dress parties and dutch bikes, but we are in fact two different people!

    Our overall goal is to show that women are interested in bikes just as much as men – we just like being girls, and certainly do not have penis envy. ; )

    We love to keep everyone guessing! What will those girls talk about next? Bloody knees, Dutch bikes, cyclocross, skirts…you never know!
