Girls Rock MTB x Juliana Bicycles Dig Days always deliver a good time! We arrived at Cotoni-Coast Dairies to a thick marine layer but a nice spread of Kellys pastries and hot coffee from Verve. After our typical circle-up, volunteers broke up into six crews and took off to spread out along a freshly cut section of trail on the third loop to cover a variety of projects.

IDing some Blueblossom Ceanothus (which is super pretty right now out there).

This crew had a serious rock work project on their hands.

Mati had to test out the brand-new stump chair that our crew members, Jackson and Mason, built.

Group E! They spent a good portion of their day fine-tuning a dirt berm in an oak grove.
