Cyclocross (Cycling BC)
This summer, Cycling BC's iRide program and Port Coquitlam Youth Services teamed up to introduce local youth to the exciting and challenging cycling discipline called Cyclocross.
What is Cyclocross?This ever growing sport has been likened to a combination of bicycle racing and Tough Mudder, or as "steeple-chase" on bikes. Cyclocross offers a safe, car-free riding environment where riders challenge their skill and fitness over a 5-8 min lap course over a set time. Each event and course is unique and often includes grass, gravel, single-track, sand, mud and forced dismounts like stairs, barriers and logs.
Cyclocross is fast paced, dynamic and challenging and keeps pace with a riders active brain making it a great option for people of any age.
