Jan distance: 259 km
Woodlands, 50 km. I tighten the leather on my Brooks saddle, three 1/4 turns. And I can feel the difference in my bones, literally.
At a traffic junction, a guy darts across. Brakes squeal, skid marks stretch across the road. A near miss. If the driver was say, glancing at his passenger, there'd be more than skid marks on the road.
A few turns of a screw. A split second reaction on the road. A little, yet it means a lot.
Just like a smile, a text message, a kind word.
