Cyclocross

We're so into Cyclocross that we made this special page for it. Also publish a Tumblr about Suffer Faces.

Single Speed Across America

I couldn’t believe it either, when I read that John Spurgeon road RAAM on a single speed built by Ira Ryan cycles in Portland. I was checking in on the results, there’s a mention, and Bike Portland posted earlier on it as well…

To me that’s sorta like using a fully-loaded track bike to tour, but then again the roadies I know probably think the Bettie is stupid.

Rolling Across Europa

John Robinson wrote to tell us about his ride across Europe for a Ukranian orphanage. From his journal,

During the summer of 2006, I traveled with only a bicycle from Lviv, Ukraine down to Napoli, Italy, then north to Calais, France. From Calais I ferried to Dover, then rode to London to complete the voyage. I visited eleven countries and saw a variety of landscapes and weather. I had encounters with many people and most of these were positive. I also used this experience to draw attention to a little orphanage in eastern Ukraine, the Makiivka HIV / AIDS orphanage.

To date John has raised $2,400, logged an amazing amount of miles, and wrote about everything.

Crossing it up

dfL Urban Outlaw Cyclo-cross-dress series

Who could resist San Francisco’s dfL Urban Outlaw Cyclo-cross- dress series? It’s a great way to get ready for cyclocross season, and a chance to show off your best tights under a fabulous little miniskirt.

If you show up in a dress, you save the $5 race fee, and there’s a Hunter frame going to the overall best dressed in the whole series.

You’ve already missed the first date: it was last night, but there’s still a 6 p.m. race September 20th at Crocker Amazon Park, another September 27th – same place and time, and the final race September 30th at 10 a.m. at Golden Gate Park, with a potluck to follow.

Update: Flickr user McBomb has posted photos from last night’s race. Here’s my favorite:

Also, the Specialized Angel has really let herself go.
