Close Encounters – An Article By Kristin Butcher

Kristin Butcher is very quickly becoming my favorite person writing about mountain biking. Her articles and opinion pieces are incredibly well written. I find them engaging, funny, heartfelt, articulate, and genuine.

“With shelves hemorrhaging bike parts and a circle of friends we can barely recognize without helmets, it seems like forever ago when it felt like we were the only ones dabbling in the world of dirt.”

Check out this great read over at Bike Magazine’s website. I can’t wait for the next issue to come out for more of her inspiring and fantastic pieces.
