THE RECENT RAIN TURNED THE MOON DUST INTO HERO DIRT.
With a larger tire, lower pressure and wider rim the connection to the road is like velcro.
I like tight, tacky gloves when I sprint and climb.
The snap of my cleat assures me I can go all out.
When I pull and push the skewers I'm confident in their ability to hold things together.
Like so many links in a chain, the entire bike should be tightly connected and working as one.
But that's nothing compared to the connections we make with the people we ride with.
