Quite the weather contrast between this week's toasty Wildcard Ride and last week's wintery-wet tour... the old year went out like a lion, and the new one arrived like a kitten! No complaints on that score though - warm and dry wins over cold and wet every time.
With all the blue sky and 80+ temperature on today's ride, an EscoGelato stop was almost mandatory. How often do we get to sit outside and have gelato in January? OK, more often than in say, Duluth, but still not often enough!
Thanks to Jerry for suggesting today's route to Jesmond Dene - and thanks to Judy for supplying additional pix for the slideshow!
This week's ridership: 14 Cyclists (5W / 9M)
It was rained out in December, but next week we try again to go 'round...

A ride around the lake with a few hills on the way there (and back.)
