Yes, indeed, this weekend was Boulder Cup Cyclocross here in Boulder. Once I read that the event organizers were planning on holding a “Cruiser Lap”, I simply couldn’t resist. “My goodness….a chance to do my first cyclocross “race”, and on my X to boot!”
The original plan was to have Junior riding the snapdeck, slipping off at every barrier. I’m glad that he simply cheered from the sidelines. While the organizers kindly had the cruisers skip the sand pit, I would have been one un-happy momma carrying an extra 45 pounds up some of those grassy hills.
With my racing days long behind me, and a bike that weighs near 35 pounds, I wasn’t any risk of finishing this fun lap in the lead. In fact, I finished just behind a couple of cross-dressers. I’m pretty sure the pun was intended.
