The rumors are true. Cyclocross racing is coming to Louisiana, and we’re getting a leg up on training. Our good friend Skip is working hard to organize CX practice rides on the duathalon course in City Park. They are slated to be EVERY THURSDAY, 6PM AT PAN-AM STADIUM IN CITY PARK. We will start out covering basics like dismounts and remounts, carrying, clearing barriers, and basic off-road riding.
Bike suitable for offroad riding. A CX bike is best, but a MTB will work. Fat tires on a road bike would even cut it for this grassy riding.
Water – It’s really hot out there. There will be cold beer provided for the express purpose of fueling friendly competition. Be sure to bring a couple bidons of cold H2O, though, or you might not last to beer’o’clock.
Helmet – Duh.
CX Skills – Bring any experience you have riding CX or off-road in general. This can range from absolutely none all the way to pretty much everything. Although those with more experience should be prepared to open their mouths, and those with less to open their ears.
We are going to get rad on the old golf course. Come mash in the grass with us and put away a couple cold ones.
Yeah You Ride

So glad to hear that CX has finally hit LA! Raising a pint glass to you all!
Raising one back at you!
I’m gonna check y’all out Thursday if it’s still on. Coming from work with a pannier. Do ya have somewhere I can put it while we ride?
Right on! Yes, you should be able to just drop it near my car.
