China Camp w/ no rear brakes

My wrist has been hurting recently.  I think it's because I spend too much time on computers.  I have been trying to rest it, so I haven't been riding recently.  I wanted something that would ease me back into it, but still be fun.

The view from Echo trail.
I rode the standard frontside loop w/ a trip up Echo.  I didn't notice any issues on the ascent, but once I descended past the power lines I heard a funky sound coming from the rear brakes.  I pulled off the rear wheel, and my brake pads were totally used up.  So I didn't use my rear brakes on the descent.

New vs. used.  I really should check these more often.
