I got started by retro fitting my old 1989 Raleigh Technium 450 and raced with that until I could get a Cross specific frame. A couple on our group ride did the Cross scene and he converted the bike for me. I have been hooked ever since. and it is going on 4 years now. I don't do well but I have fun racing.

@APLOUIS, I would look and ask around at local shops. One of ours has a class you can take for the cyclocross curious. Then just get out there and try a local race! Spark member KAYZAKCX also does cross, might want to msg him and ask how he got started.
Check to see if there's a local group near you. I live in a fairly rural area, and there's a cyclocross group an hour away. If there's an event near you, go to it - there will probably be a club with an info tent set up.
Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.
