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?
