Think you're tough? Oh, you probably are.
Not me. Not like these people. They're practicing for a kind of bicycle racing called Cycle-Cross.
This part doesn't look that hard. You jump off your bike, lift it over the logs and jump on again. What the camera doesn't capture is that you're going at break-neck speed.
Our local group, SoCalCross, practices on Wednesday evenings in the same place where Boz and I like to walk. Thankfully these guys are nice about dogs and Boz sorta knows to stay out of their way. Still, it's a good idea to watch out if you're walking at Hahamongna Watershed Park on a Wednesday evening. These bikers are fast!
I understand from an insider that new riders are welcome to train with them. Are you man or woman enough? Not me. I'm sticking with wide tires and baskets.
