    Arctic Cross Cyclocross in The Last Frontier Written by Ryan on November 15 2013 Posted in Alaska Bicycle Bicycle Racing Cyclocross Events Races No Comments The Whittier ferry dock was and still is broken so we took the ferry to Valdez from Cordova making the drive to Anchorage 300 miles as opposed to the 60 miles it is from Whittier Melissa and I decided somewhat last minute to caravan back to Anchorage with Bryan and Garret spending a few days in the big city picking up this and that read booze groceries and my new fatbike They got a head start on us as we stopped in Valdez for a late breakfast after we disembarked We caught up to them on the side of the road in between Valdez and Glenallen where car troubles almost caused their rear wheel to fall off They hopped in with us and we left Garret s car there for a few days planning to bring Garret back with parts and tools on our return trip Spoiler alert I didn t get a bike that weekend but Melissa got a brand new Fatback for winter adventuring It looked like we may even get to witness a cross race as the Arctic Cross series was having their final race while we were there I didn t think I would be allowed to race not having been part of the series this year so I didn t bring my bike Turns out it would have been fine and I was pretty bummed that I was so pessimistic The Arctic Cross webpage is a little dated and is difficult to understand for somebody coming to town wanting to race bikes Sure there is race info it s mostly results you can t find out much about how the race categories are setup race times and sometimes even the race days are incorrect Ah well computers are hard We made it to the Goose Lake race in Anchorage the course was located right off the bike path in town We pulled in to the parking lot saw bike racks on cars and trucks folks in spandex a couple sections of course tape and figured we were in the right place Parking was easy It rained the few days prior so the course was a bit muddy but race day was crisp and clear with soggy ground My favorite race days I often miss the cyclocross in Seattle and I most definitely miss my Hodala teammates As we walked into the park we saw the familiar sight of kids playing riding around on bikes just a little bit too big for them or too small Adults walking around with mud and smiles on faces a BBQ was being prepared for the end of the season Beer flowed from 2 kegs respectfully stowed out of plain site We scoped the course similar in many spots to a mountain bike course but with the cyclocross staples of barriers and a sandpit Near

    Brewing that I enjoyed with my lunch at Cafe Amsterdam A Cohoho Imperial IPA on Nitro So good The nitro gave it such a creamy consistency and opened up a lot of flavors that I hadn t noticed in bottle or C02 draft My food like most found in Anchorage at least in my price range was ok I didn t get dysentery but it was nothing to write home about From my experience you won t find great food or an amazing cocktail in Anchorage but you can find some good beer a lot of it brewed in our wonderful state Continue Reading Frosty Bottom 25 50 Written by Ryan on January 3 2015 Posted in No Comments The Frosty Bottom 50 25 is an annual winter endurance event held entirely on the multi use trails around Anchorage Ski bike or run from Kincaid Chalet to Hilltop for the short version or continue back to Kincaid for the long race Sponsored by Chain Reaction Cycles the 2015 event is slated for January 3 The event starts at 9am at Kincaid Park There will be a pre race meeting at 8 45am Continue Reading Our Sponsors Find Us On Facebook GoMeansGo on Twitter Tall Bryan on Instagram Ryan on Instagram Flickr Group Recent Comments Example 1 The Humpday Hustler Benny Blanco June 18 2015 Hi Bryan appreciate the review I m doing the same mod to the lock I just picked up the body does feel bulky and plasticy Just one question where did you get the sweet Abus stick Thanks Holger Ketterle June 12 2015 Ryan I m right there with you on this bike all I can think of is for 5k i could build a carbon race bike an aluminum crit bike and a vintage steel framed

    fall winter and well that time in the Pacific Northwest can be cold And wet And for the most part the races take place in areas that don t provide covered areas for spectators to gather Teams of course have covered areas for their riders where they can get dressed wait for their category stay dry hydrate and just have a place to be Not so with spectators If you aren t prepared chances are you won t have a good time It is easy to wander around aimlessly unsure of where to go what areas are open to spectators where the good viewpoints are If you don t know a barrier from a run up it can be a little intimidating What I m going to do is break down a little list of things that you should bring to your next or first cross race You should of course make your own list but these are things that I find very helpful You may notice that some things below are hard to bring by bike This is mainly due to the fact that at least in Seattle most racing is done outside of city limits This not only makes it harder to carry things like a popup tent but reiterates that you should leave your house prepared with all you may need Shelter Whether this be rain gear that you can stand in the rain all day with an umbrella or best of all a popup tent you will want a place to watch the race that you won t be soaked to the bone If you bring a pop up tent you can likely set up on the side of the race as long as you ensure you are not in the way of the racers It s a great way to meet new people that appreciate how prepared you are Warm clothes I can t stress this enough Depending on what categories you intend on watching if you get to a race at the setup time of 8am ish and stay till the end if you aren t dressed in warm clothes you ll hate it or get hypothermia neither of which helps grow the sport This includes warms gloves and a hat Rubber boots Seriously Cyclocross courses are often muddy Some people call them pit boots Dry feet are a big step to ensure warm feet It means that you can walk around the course without tip toeing and that is huge If you have a favorite pair of waterproof warm boots that s a good start but don t be surprised when they are covered in mud If you get cold feet consider thick wool socks or even those heated insole things that you can get from the sporting goods store Refreshments A big thermos full of coffee is amazing to have when the rain is falling and it s 45 degrees out A little Bailey s in it and a dreary day just
