Update: Santa Cruz Wildcat 2011 photos here.
The Santa Cruz Wildcat bike race is not your average alleycat race. There are mountains to climb, rivers to ford, sandy singletrack to bomb down, redwood trees to avoid, rock gardens to navigate and beaches to run across, so something sturdy and fast with gears is a Really Good Idea. Cyclocross bike is the best choice if you’ve got one. I foolishly tried this on a fixed gear bike a few years ago and nearly died.
Registration begins at 11 AM, Saturday July 23 at the Bike Church in Santa Cruz, CA.
