The first multi-purpose Cyclocross course in the San Diego region is set to open on November 11 at Oceanside’s El Corazon Park with a grand opening event that is a skills and training clinic, single track riding and a training race from 9:00am – 2:00pm.

Over the next several months the “CycloCross Course at El Corazon” will be sculpted to accommodate a variety of uses with considerations for:

  • Cyclocross/gravel/single track riding clinics;
  • BMX and pump track riding;
  • 2018 Canyon Belgian Waffle Ride training;
  • Bicycle and e-Bike manufacturer demonstrations;
  • Corporate team building events;
  • Youth cycling development programs;
  • Collegiate training and racing
  • USA Cycling and US CUP GP Cross sanctioned race events.

“We are excited to add this venue to our history of support for marquee cycling events in our region,” said Leslee Gaul, president, Visit Oceanside. “Our community is known for Ironman 70.3, Race Across America, Bike the Coast, Rider Safety Visibility, and now Cyclocross; this is a testament to the strong cycling culture and influence of Oceanside.”

Cyclocross has parallels with mountain bike racing, cross-country cycling and criterium racing that involves single track, off-camber, mount/dismount obstacle course style riding. It is extremely spectator friendly, with most races conducted on a looped course. It is the largest growing segment among female athletes, and one of the top growth segments in the entire cycling industry.

A fixed schedule for operations, and events, will be posted at Oceanside CycloCross on Facebook. The space is open for locals and visitors alike to ride or hone skills in a park with no vehicle traffic intersections; usage fees per participant will apply.

To sign-up for the inaugural event on Saturday November 11th go to Bike Reg. Space is limited. Thanks to the generosity of Swami’s Cycling Club, participants 16 and under can attend the clinics for free.

Supported by:
Visit Oceanside, Sudberry Properties, Rider Safety Visibility, SoCal Bike,​ NiteRider Technical Lighting Systems,, Swami’s Cycling Club, California Bicycle Inc., and SAGE Titanium Bicycles

(Christoph Bayer) SRAM AXS – 13 Good Reasons Why Electronic Components on Bikes Are the Future | The Slow Death of ‘Buy It For Life’

We see the bike media et. al. falling over themselves to encourage a public dependence on component electronics. And both ebikes and component electronics have an intrinsic designed obsolescence, by virtue of these systems having a limited number of battery cycles. There won’t be ‘vintage’ drivetrains in 20 years as none of the batteries will be usable. I have a birthday coming up, maybe I’m being overly nostalgic to consider this.
