Many say “that’s like mountain biking right” ? Umm..well..
I then spend the next couple of minutes trying to explain the ins and outs of what I feel to be the most fun you can have racing your bike.
Looking for great way to boost your fitness and keep things rolling into the winter ? Look no further than cyclocross..
The video below comes via YouTube and gives the general idea of what the idea of Cyclocross is , yes it’s a race but it is so much more !

I am the third generation manager of Dedham Bike located in Dedham, Ma.
For over 25 years I have been a master mechanic, marketing manager and general manager at Dedham.
I am an avid cyclist and skier and occasionally you will find me running or in the weight room.
My love for bicycles started in the the 1970’s with my first BMX race at a track my dad ran.
Since that time I have raced mountain bikes, road, BMX and cyclocross to many podium finishes including NORBA national victories and multiple series and state championship victories.
If it has two wheels or is a challenge, I’m into it.
