The 40th issue is about gambling because so much of what we do to find adventure has risks, wagers, and payouts. We bet that a chain can last another two weeks, that we won’t need a rain jacket tonight, that we can squeak by that taxi before the passenger exits. Do we play it safe, or are we risking too much for too little? Are we looking at the long game or losing our head in the moment? The issue also includes coverage of Interbike, the American industry’s trade show that took place in Vegas last month. And, just yesterday, news of another quick-release related recall.
My editor’s letter in the issue is about a ride last weekend in the Methow Valley, where it’s very meadowy, and I made a choice to climb up into those hills.
