    Cyclocross Practice is back, free as always, thanks to our dedicated volunteers and Madison Parks and Dane County Parks!  Perfect for everyone from 'cross-curious newcomers and mountain bikers who want to improve their skills to seasoned veterans getting ready for the race season, we'll have courses set up somewhere in the area every Wednesday through the end of October.  Riders of all abilities welcome, and any bike that can handle off-road riding will work (though slick tires will add another level of challenge).  There is no such thing as bad weather for cyclocross, so practice will be on unless it is so wet that we'd be damaging the turf.
