We have some great gravel grinders in the area during the fall and it’s great mountain biking weather.
I will try to hit a few cross races. One of the bike shops runs a weekly Wednesday night cross training series under the lights. We also have some fun cross events in the area. I do not have full range of motion in my right wrist (plate and 8screws) and was unable to bend it to lift my bike last year. It will be interesting to see how it goes this year.
Look forward to hear about your experiences.
