We started off on the bike trails behind the Carrilon. They were relatively technical and I felt a little nervous at times, but I hung on and just followed a line. I surprised myself and had a lot of fun!
Afterward, we stopped off for a quick visit at the Pump House. The pump house is one of my favorite random hidden treasure in Richmond. It used to be an old fancy-pants dance hall, but doesn't look like it's been used in decades.

It'll be a long time before I catch onto this skill...
This was my first time...Tappan goes most weekday mornings and hopefully I'll make it out to join him more often. It's a fun combination of the calm woods and cruising--- with a twist of edginess.
