A nice cool-down, post-work ride with sprite. She’d had quite the day at an office outing, playing volleyball and spending time in the sun, so she was fairly wiped out. We saw some late-season fawns along the Crescent trail, and I snapped a few pictures that’ll appear on my Flickr page tonight. I mostly spun at an easy pace, which was great for clearing the weekend’s worth of lactic acid out of my legs.
