Last weekend I picked up a used cyclocross bike at a swap meet for a ridiculously low price. Unfortunately, it was a "touch" too small for me. I contacted my friend Doug, who happens to be a "touch" smaller than me, and he was interested in checking it out.
Today we got him set up on the bike and went for a 42-mile ride. Lots of hills and a few dirt and gravel sections to get our Paris-Roubaix on. I had fun, and I think I have recruited a new cyclocross believer.
He looks like a natural:
I'm hoping Doug will join the party and race this fall. Pom frites, beer and cowbells!
