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.

City of Rocks

Rockville always lives up to its literal name. The rocks were all a little pointier than usual, but the good thing about rocks is they don't wash away, so most of the trails were still in great shape for riding. If you like rocks, which we do.

Doubling up

We're just a couple weeks from Moab, so it's time to test our recovery abilities. After yesterday's epic, we had a mellow ride in Joaquin Miller with some of the kids from our youth program, including Zeke on his awesome 16" uni. A few hikers joined us, and we ran into Yu up there, and George missing a wheel.
