Cyclocross is a specific type of bike racing. The course is off-road but sometimes includes portions of pavement, grass, dirt, mud, gravel, sand and other materials. Races are based on a set time, not distance.

A beginners’ course takes place at the park at 5:30 p.m. Thursday for anyone interested in learning the fundamentals.
