CyclePath Knox Your Socks Off (BCICX)


Oct. 29, 2023

Event Information

European road cyclists in the early 1900s used to race each other to the next town over through farmers’ fields, over dirt roads, ditches, hedges, probably livestock… Forced portage sections helped exercise other muscle groups and improved circulation in the cold off-season months.

Cyclocross is now the second most popular road cycling discipline, sweeping across Europe and now North America. Modern cyclocross races consist of many laps of a several-kilometer course featuring everything from pavement to trails to ankle-deep (and sometimes deeper) mud, with steep hills, staircases and barriers requiring riders to dismount, carry the bike over, around or through the obstacle, and remount to continue riding.
