I was away this weekend visiting my two favorite women – my best friends from college – so I left Kovas to entertain himself. Mid-morning on Saturday I got a call from him asking what size I wear, and in the background all I heard was a whole lot of commotion. “Where are you and why do you need to know my size?” “I’m at VELOSWAP!” Oh yes, VeloSwap. How could I forget? It’s the event Kovas waits for all year, where all bike geeks from around Denver (and probably Colorado) gather in one place to wallow in bike stuff. I admit that I don’t love crowds in small places, but I am always heartened by the sight of all those cyclists in one place. I guess I feel good knowing the sport – whether you just like to to tool around on your cruiser or race up Vail Pass – is alive and well…TV and fast food haven’t taken us over yet!
