Cyclocross Schedule in NC and SC

As a resident of the Charlotte North Carolina region I can tell you that cyclocross has been slow to pick up in the area. It seems this season is going to change all of this. More practices, more area races and more folks wanting to ride their cyclocross bikes more during a year.

The Power of People

Megan Archer is a mid-30’s amateur cyclocross racer. Giving everything to the passion of sport, and for the power of the people. When I sat down to write this blog post, I had originally planned to recap both of my races at ‘cross nationals. Due to the overwhelming love and support from the cycling community in the last few days, that original plan has been sidelined. Now, I am writing to celebrate the power of people. A Little Background…

Intro: Review of 2014 Raleigh RX 1.0 Women’s Cyclocross Bike

This past summer Raleigh Bikes released photos and spec of their 2014 cyclocross line, including the RX 1.0 Women’s bike. The bike didn’t change too much other than paint and some small part upgrades. I was excited about the bike (mainly due to the paint job and price) for women and thought it would be a perfect do-all bike for my better half. So here we are doing a second review of the women’s RX 1.0! This second review of the…

Cyclocross Bicycle Practice, or my First CX Race is This Weekend

My first cyclocross “race” is this coming Sunday; I use the word race loosely as I’m looking at it as bicycle practice, with a very high average heart rate. Things to do for my first CX race of the season Find wheels for my cyclocross bike. I have a pair of Specialized Roval Pave wheels that I’ll be swapping over from my single speed. This way I can leave my Powertap on the road bike, and not have to worry about durabilit…

2014 Raleigh RX 1.0 Women’s Cyclocross Bike

A couple years ago I did a full review of the Raleigh RX 1.0 women’s cyclocross bike. The articles do get a lot of comments and questions still to date so it is very fitting that Raleigh USA is releasing the 2014 images and spec early! The spec hasn’t changed too much from years past, the colors may appeal to more of a racer than the while but the mounts are still available for racks and fenders to make this into the commuter machine…
