BMX blisters are all part of the fun

“I’ve been riding BMX bikes for about ten years now. Yes, my hands have blisters [I asked to see them after the last BMXer I spoke with]. You get them from pulling on the bars all the time. If I wear gloves, then I really sweat inside them and don’t have the connection with the bike. But I also ride a motorbike and I cannot do a trick without having gloves on. They are just very different sports.”

Notes: I must be on a BMX fascination, of late. And I had to ask about the blister presence. Really surprised to discover this is all part of the trade and craft.
