what is #backyardcx2013?
I like riding my bike. It goes without saying. Just look at the domain name. Ever since we moved into our house I have been thinking of different routes around the trees and throughout the backyard for a mini cyclocross course just for me to play and train. While I don’t have any plans to actually race this season due to the business of life as a dad in the Midwest (poor excuse) I still like riding my On-One Dirty Disco in its native habitat.
So to answer the question what is #backyardcx2013?
It is a cyclocross race against one’s self in one’s backyard or close by city park in which one rides laps to better one’s fitness and soul.
“Why did you put a dumb hashtag on the name, Jeremy?”
The hashtag is so that I can follow my progress as I ride this course over and over and over.
Here is the course via Strava:
And here is the results of my first 4 lap running of it, only 20 minutes as I realized I am in no shape to be pushing CX type levels of running and riding:
My initial goal with this is to push towards 40 min and 8 laps. I will get there, it just takes time.
If I had a GoPro I would shoot a video of it, but you get to see the DD at the start line
Have fun, and try #backyardcx2013 for yourself
