Braking it in

I've been working on adding a brake to my 24" (Pittsburgh), and Dragon and I took it out on its first big Joaquin Miller ride. It's not totally dialed in but it's definitely promising.

Epic ride, eh?

Several of our locals (Jim, Nathan, and Ned) participated in the epic Kluane Chilkat race in northern Canada and Alaska, a 150-mile, one-day cycling event, which they planned to do as a relay group of four. They turned out to be the only ones to finish the race.

A hot one in Soquel Demo

It was super-hot this weekend, so we decided to go to a place with "Forest" in the name. It was still pretty hot in Soquel Demo. Great two-sport day!

Pop-up ride

Might as well take advantage of the long days while we can; a few of us did a pop-up ride after work on a beautiful evening. We were taking it easy, and I think officially we didn't even have a biff between us.

Two sports, finally

It had been months and months since I was able to organize a legit two-sport day. School does that do you. So we made an expedition out to Napa Skyline Wilderness Park, home of California MUni Weekend 2013.

Moab day 3

For our last day we went for a quick crank out to Moab Rim and Behind the Rocks. Dragon took Best Biff into a pool, and we had great fun on Sand Hill, which was a little more rideable than usual because of the extra dampness.
