What a beautiful October for cycling. The leaves are brilliantly colored, and the warm fall days are followed by cool fall evenings. It won’t be like this for long, so make sure to get out this weekend and enjoy these events.


Saint Louis is hosting two days of cyclocross racing at the Gateway Cross Cup.

Also, the Jewish Architectural and Historical Bike Tour in Saint Louis will take riders on a 12-mile trip through history. Enjoy beautiful architecture and learn about how the Jewish community helped shape the Saint Louis area.


Bobbers Cross will be held in North Liberty on Saturday.


Charley’s Bike Lab Cross-toberfest is two days of cyclocross fun in Harrah, OK. Both days are at the same location but offer different courses.


Get down on Saturday with The Rhythm and Blues Revue Cyclocross Race in Evanston. Then, head to Peoria on Sunday for the Bushwhacker CX race.


Tri County Shakedown will take place this Sunday in Little Rock. Any event with a beer entry fee has to be a good time.
