I had 2 goals I wanted to reach this year and I had the good luck to achieve them both in one day - and - more importantly - had fun doing it.
Saturday, August 7 I finished up the last ride needed for my R-12 while completing the 3 Volcanoes 300km on tandem with rando extraordinaire, Peg Winczewski. I have a feeling our "record" for an all female tandem on that course will stand for some time.
A few pics courtesy of Jason Dul:

Jason, the photographer, his front wheel encountering gravel, and Kole and Jennifer climbing Babyshoe Pass
Randos at a watering hole - gotta watch out for crocodiles!
The tandem conquers Babyshoe and a group shot at the top while donating blood to the mosquitos (apparently the atmosphere at Babyshoe has a special quality that makes me extremely UNphotogenic)
A river crossing just outside of Trout Lake
Beautiful scenery to distract us from that final climb up to Elk Summit and and ominous looking sight at the top
