This two-day event, brought to you by So Cal Cross and Planet Bike, includes everything you could ask for in one weekend: Cyclocross racing, obstacle courses, bike polo, food trucks and a Velo Swap Meet. There will be a beer garden for those 21 and up and kid-friendly activities for the younger ones including pumpkin carving and a costume contest.
