I went for a great cyclocross bike ride in the Alabama Hills before work Tuesday. A cyclocross ('cross) bike is basically like a road bike, but with slightly wider nobbby tires. Here's a picture of my "steed."
I started at camp at Movie Flat and rode up Hogback Road. This is one of the many fine views of Lone Pine Peak.
These well graded dirt roads were perfect for the 'cross bike!
