Looks like I'll be traveling out to California at least twice this fall -- and both trips are going to knock out races I was focusing on in the Virginia Cyclocross series. Rats!

Since I've got a bike set up for travel that can do some cyclocross (it's a nice '70s road bike of unknown provenance set up with travel couplers & clearance for cross tires up to around 30-32c), I was hoping to find some races in the following spots or, barring that, good local 'cross or road rides in Palo Alto the weekend of October 26-27, and Monterey November 16-17.

On a previous trip to Monterey last year, I hooked up with the Velo Club Monterey for their Saturday & Sunday rides, and had a blast, so I guess that's an option too... But considering I'll be missing a 'cross race in Charlottesville, VA to be there, it'd be nice to strap on some knobbies!

a little early for race schedules, but...Jakob

you can check out for the surf city series and (that's me on the front page!)for the series schedules from last year.

otherwise, there is a race about 2 hours from palo alto on the 27th of october. it's part of the toasted head series that ernesto is putting on. i'll definitely be at that race. is the best overall place to find out about norcal race schedules.

let us know what you decide to do and maybe we can hook up for a ride. we could meet halfway, like maybe the east bay/oakland hills. there should be some scheduled saturday morning rides but it's early to know who will be putting those on.
I'll keep you posted!triangleforge

Thanks; I'll be sure to post a note here as my schedule becomes clearer.

Of course, I'm sure I'll be able to recognize you from that photo on the CCCX front page :-)

I'll keep you posted!Jakob

yeah, well, maybe if i wear my blue socks.

the funny thing is that is the first of two photos of me on the web on my cross bike the other one was posted by ernesto the other day after our ride at rh phillips. i'm totally unrecognizable in that one, too.
