The Cyclocross Workout Of The Day for Saturday, 8.20.16. “Holy workouts!”

Howdy folks,

Welcome to the weekend, friends!

I’ve been saying for the last couple/few weeks that if you’ve got the time…



…you should get yourself out there and get some miles in. Some long, hard miles. 

Honestly, I’m kinda running out of ways to spin that, but it’s still the plan. Got the day free? Go spend it on your bike!

Especially if you aren’t coming off a road – or mtb – season, this is the time to lay down the base that will carry you through the long dark days of winter.

It’s one of the nice things about cyclocross. Unlike the roady crew, we get to put in our base miles when the weather is actually nice. 

Long miles when it’s sunny and warm, short races when it’s cold and wet… it’s like there’s a higher power up there composing this whole thing…




Personally, I don’t have a free day today. Stuff to do, places to be… but that’s ok.

I’m teaching some cyclocross clinics this week, and you know what I haven’t done so far this season?

I haven’t spent any time on the actual cyclocross bike.

So, today I’m going to remedy that. I’m going to go out and spend part of this beautiful summer afternoon doing some skill work on my cx rig, so that I’m just a wee bit more sharp when I show tips and tricks to some of ya’all this Wednesday.  If you’re in the Seattle/Tacoma area, I hope to see you out there!

In the meantime, if you haven’t got the time to go long, think about pulling out the CX bike today and spend some time brushing up on some of those skills…



Have fun,



Hey folks! Go Check out…


If you think you might just need some more personalized coaching or training!
