Speedtrap Ride Tuesday August 17th recap

          Pleasant riding weather brought forty-one cyclists, a record number for 2021, to Elmore last night for the Speedtrap Ride.

          Scott Lang reported a riding average of 23.2 mph for his Ghost Pepper Riders.

          Bob Kayden indicated there were only four Cayenne Pepper Riders. Each rider’s turn to pull came more quickly than usual. But Bob reported 21.7 mph.

          Doug Kilpatrick and his Habanero Riders rode to a 21.1 mph average.

          Todd Pollock, leader of the Jalapeno Riders, reported that there were six riders in his group, including one new rider, Tim Michaels. Their riding average was 17.8 mph.

          There were six of us in the Sweet Pepper category. Ron Purk from that group reported 15.9 mph.

          There was an easterly wind throughout the ride, making a headwind for much of the return trip to Elmore. However, it didn’t seem to be an issue for mostA.

          Pictured is first-time Speedtrap Rider Tim Michaels. Welcome Tim!

          Please join us next Tuesday, August 24th, for the next chapter of the Speedtrap Ride. Come out to Elmore and see why it’s the best Tuesday night ride out of Ottawa County. After the ride, many cyclists will be going to DeStazios Bistro Restaurant for food and drink. DeStazios is staying open later than usual to accommodate Speedtrap Riders. Sign-in for the ride begins at 6:00 in front of the bike shop. I hope to see you then!
