Speedtrap Ride Tuesday, June 8th recap
The Speedtrap Ride drew twenty-six riders to Elmore last night. Although it appeared earlier that there would be a threat of rain, the weather was fine by ride time. There was a slight headwind for the first third of the ride, but that made a nice tailwind for the return trip to Elmore.
Scott Lang led the Ghost Pepper Riders and reported a 22.9 mph average speed.
Bob Kayden and his Cayenne Pepper Riders rode at a 22 mph average.
Doug Kilpatrick led the Habanero Riders with a 20.6 mph average.
Todd Pollock led the Jalapenos and reported a riding average of 18.5 mph.
Claude Watkins and I formed the Sweet Pepper Riders and we rode an average of 14.5 mph
After the ride, several riders gathered in front of the bike shop to celebrate Scott Lang’s birthday. Scott is pictured in the kitten jersey, a Flatlanders tradition, and with his birthday cake made by Jennifer Marquardt. Happy Birthday, Scott! Hopefully there are many more triathlons, mountain bike events, and Speedtrap Rides in your future!
Also pictured is Bryan Rose, new to the Speedtrap Ride this week! Welcome Bryan!
Please join us next Tuesday, June 15th, for the next chapter of the Speedtrap Ride. Sign-in will begin at 6:00 in front of Spoke Life Cycles Elmore, and we roll out at 6:30 pm. I hope to see you then.
