The launch of grit.cx is a wonderful adventure for many reasons. Acknowledging the rapid growth of cyclocross, gravel riding and other adventurous forms of cycling, we recognized a distinct lack of a cohesive voice in the community for these disciplines. We started this thing because we’re participants and huge fans of all of it, and we want to learn more about the scenes, the people, the gear and the passion that’s so damned interesting and exciting. We also want to share with you the stories, ideas and trends as they develop. If we want to get completely idealistic, we would also like to help influence all of this, and help the community evolve.
It’s always exciting to start a new adventure in life. Endeavors like getting married, starting a new job, traveling around the world, entering a race, walking on the moon or starting a new bicycling publication tend to enhance our relationship with the world around us, and get our blood pumping. The promise of exploring the unknown, meeting new friends and becoming familiar with unfamiliar things fills us with hope, knowledge and a deeper appreciation of everything around us.
