Try out racing - Beans n' Barley Cyclocross

I raced my first cyclocross a few weeks ago, and it was tons of fun. You can just use your mountain bike, and there's people of all skill levels to race against.

You need a full race licence, or a Single Event License to race. However, for this event the organizer is covering the cost of the Single Event License, so this is a great deal and an easy way to try your hand at racing. There should be lots of free food and draw prizes handed out.

Full race info guide:

    Actually, it turns out I can't do this. You only get 2 single event licenses per year, and I've used mine up. I might come out to cheer though.

      why don't you get a full licence then?

      It's the end of the season, so it's not worth the cost. Next year for sure though.

    I think I'll come with my cow bells to cheer you on. I might have my boys and enter my 5 year old :)

    sounds interesting, you think any mountain bike will do? How many lap are you supposed to do in 40min? what did you have to do for your 1st cyclocross?

      I signed up for the novice men, are you an experimented racer now or are you joining the novice as well?

    Forgot to add - you can wear your Halloween costume, and there's a free kids' race as well.
