What is Cyclo Cross?……Cyclo cross is a form of cross country racing on adapted road bikes to enable riders to take them off road to travel fast and efficiently.
You could also call the bikes ‘Gravel’ bikes, which are great for our area with lots of forest tracks to link with single track roads, making spectacular journeys in the wild west. Some ideas below:
