Cyclocross is here to stay thanks to groups like the Dirt Derby which is put on by The Peddler Bike Shop. I suggest grabbing your bike and heading out there one Tuesday after work. What else are you possibly doing on a Tuesday evening? I should warn you; cyclocross is pretty addictive so get over there before the season is over.
By the way, did you know Austin was chosen to host the 2015 CX Nationals?
