Sometimes it’s Hard to be a Woman

“Bike Like a Man”. Good or bad, it’s a mantra I use when I want to bike strong. I recently discovered I may have taken this mantra a bit too far when I overheard a couple of spectators at last weekend’s…

Fantastic Cross-Tastic (and Then Some)

Ok, how fun was that? FOG’s Cross-Tastic race at Wittier Park on Sunday offered swoopy grass stuff, fast gravel sections, muckapalooza, stairs, barriers, hills… and then sausages and wicked draw prizes. Somebody described cross races as a family picnic with…

Cross-Tastic this Sunday!

Time to get ready for Cross-Tastic this Sunday at Wittier Park. B Race starts at 1:45(ish). Will this race be another Mudbuster like Menno Cross? Or nice swoopy grassiness like St. Malo? Or something in between? No matter, there will be…

Saint Malo and the Stairway to Heaven

I tried unsuccessfully to find out the story of the real Saint Malo, and although I didn’t find anything useful, I suspect he met some grisly end like many of his Saintly cohorts. Thankfully, the St. Malo CX race this…

Double Cross Weekend

With two races to choose from this weekend, plus the added pressures of laundry and skinning my cat, what’s a girl to do? I decided to do some “research” (Google surfing) to weigh one against the other in anticipation of the…

The Good, The Bad and The Muddy

This weekend’s Menno Cross was without a doubt the most gruelling and filthy sporting event I have ever participated in. It was also one of the most fun and memorable. I’m not sure, but I suspect there are all sorts…

Menno Cross

So I didn’t quite make the cross race last weekend as originally planned. Cycle Chick had to take a brief hiatus and assume her evil alter ego, Laundry Chick. Stupid laundry. But this Saturday, I will be out (so consider…

Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Black and Blue

At the risk of appearing too forward, I thought this title was a good description of my second date with cyclocross, the second Cross Lab held on Saturday morning. The only two attendees were me and the session leader, Hal…

Cross Training

Last night, in my ongoing quest to either kill or humiliate myself on a bicycle, I attended a Cross Lab, a locally run series of technique and workout sessions meant to prepare riders for the impending cyclocross season. What is…
