    I have seen more people riding CX bikes in the Don this season. My passion in single track but I recognize that road biking has helped my fitness substantially. Should I be thinking about CX the same way? I’d enjoy riding in the Don much more than the roads around the city.

    Are most CX riders road bikers looking for variety or trail riders looking for a longer higher paced ride? Any common loops that people ride in and around the Don?

    I have an old Stumpjumper 29er that I have been thinking about putting a rigid fork on. Would aI benefit much from a true cyclocross bike?

    I think the majority of CX riders in the Don ride to improve their technical skills on their CX bike. You won’t gain any material fitness benefits riding CX on the singletrack.

    I sometimes ride my CX bike in the Don, but only as a new challenge when I feel like i need to #MakeTheDonHardAgain

    I think riding a rigid bike can help you ride a little lighter, but I think it’s mostly done for the enjoyment the simplicity of a rigid fork.

    As for loops, most stick to ridge/boo/oob/flats, but everything is technically “rideable” on a CX bike depending on how scared you want to be.
