Vintage CycloCross in OregonCyclocross at Pat's Acres

October 19th, 2013 - Canby, Oregon

Canby's CX course, voted #1 Cyclocross course by numerous 2011 & 2012 participants, gets even better for 2013. Check out the new improved river crossings, return of the natural island forest trails (and some new ones for 2013!), beginner friendly MX jumps, log obstacles, and more! A classic old-school course with just the right mix of old & new.
