Just Friends' Day / US Open (NY/NJ)
For this double-header weekend, we dropped off a busload of Richmond Cutthroats in Brooklyn, NY for our annual camping trip to Floyd Bennett Field, then headed to Diablo Freeride Park to ride and watch the US Open.
Joey and I rode nonstop on Friday and Saturday, taking a short lunch break on Saturday to watch the US Open qualifying runs. It was the first time this season that we've been on our DH bikes, and it was a great way to start the summer.
Friday night we caught The Hangover 2 at the Warwick Drive-In Theater near Vernon, NJ.
After two long days of riding, Joey and I decided to head back to Floyd Bennett Field a day early. It was a good call and it allowed us a day to relax before heading back to Richmond. On Sunday we headed to Rockaway Beach in Queens, NY. I was amazed that such a gorgeous beach lay just around the corner from the big city. After that we headed back to camp, relaxed and leisurely packed up, then headed back to Richmond.
