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.

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.
