    Hi,

    Anyone knows a good cyclocross coaching session in San Francisco/Bay Area? I am a complete beginner and don't know where to start.

    I've never tried cyclocross, but if I wanted to try it I'd ask the folks at my LBS for advice on how to get started, since I know they support cross races. If you don't know a bike shop in your area, maybe the websites for the local races list one or two as race sponsors. Good luck!

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    +1 on ny_biker's suggestion. Check this site: http://www.cxnation.com/clinics/

    Often, teams hold open practices that they allow others to join. That was the case in the Chicago area (my former neighborhood) and, to some extent, in DC. You could contact some of the local teams or race organizers. Clinics tend to happen at the start of the cyclocross season, though (August, September).

    There is a great amount of videos in youtube. I like the how-to's from GCN:
