An easy route today, just a quick up and back on the Jesmond Dene Jaunt. The temperature went from nearly ideal at the start to nearly 90 by the time everyone got back to VV Park; but it was nice riding all the same: no mishaps, no flats, and a refreshing stop at EscoGelato.
Many thanks to David and Mary Ann for the pictures and ride report!
And a shout out to Sharon Chaix who competed in the SF Rock n Roll Half Marathon last weekend, where she took the top of the podium in her classification. Way to Go, Sharon!
