Speedtrap Ride Tuesday September 28th recap
The final official chapter of the Speedtrap Ride for 2021 brought thirty-two eager cyclists to Elmore this past Tuesday, September 28th, for a great ride in almost ideal riding weather. Scott Lang and his Ghost Pepper Riders rode to a 24.3 mph average – a nice way to end the season! Bob Kayden reported a 22.3 mph average for his Cayenne Pepper Riders. The Habanero Riders reported a 20.4 mph average(Tony Mazurek, leader?) Doug Kilpatrick filled in for Todd Pollock as leader of the Jalapeno Riders. Doug Reported a 19.5 mph average. Claude Watkins, Dave Stoiber, and I rode out as the Sweet Pepper Riders. Hubert Backes eventually joined us. We returned with a 16.2 mph average.
There was one new rider this week, Devon Boyd, who hails all the way from Melbourne, Australia![Unfortunately, no picture].
Pictured are Bob Kayden and Scott Lang presenting me with two “Thanks Chuck” pumpkin pies for leading the Speedtrap Ride. Thank you! I enjoyed being part of the group, and I hope I have made the Speedtrap Ride better and more appealing than if I hadn’t been there. However, the thanks really goes from me to all the riders and ride leaders, Scott Lang, Bob Kayden, Doug Kilpatrick, and Todd Pollock, for making the Speedtrap Ride the great ride that it is. Thank you all! I also thank everyone for allowing me to ride with and be among some of the finest people in these parts! Thank you also to Rob Golden and his Spoke Life Cycles Elmore staff, Mike Meiser, Doug Kilpatrick, and Dan Waggoner for their support of the Speedtrap Ride.
I look forward to seeing the best Tuesday night ride out of Ottawa County roll out once again on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. I hope to see you then!
