Speedtrap Ride Tuesday May 24th

      The Speedtrap Ride, the best Tuesday night ride out of Ottawa County, is a joint venture of the Toledo Area Bicyclists(TAB) and the Flatlanders Bicycle Club. It’s a great ride to meet riders from another club and to learn about their club.

           The Speedtrap Ride will once again roll out tomorrow, Tuesday, May 24th, at 6:30 pm from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio.  The weather looks to be favorable: no rain and temperatures in the upper 60s. There will, however, be an ENE wind making a slight headwind on the return ride to Elmore.

          Scott Lang will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders. If you ride in his group, expect to average 22+ mph. Are you up to the challenge?

          Bob Kayden will lead the Cayenne Pepper Riders at a slightly slower pace: 21+ mph

          Doug Kilpatrick will take out the Habanero Riders at still a slightly slower pace 20+ mph. Still a fast-paced ride!

          Todd Pollock will lead the Jalapeno Riders at 16 – 18 mph.

          I will ride out with anyone who would like to ride at a more casual pace, Last week we averaged 15.1 mph, 2 mph faster than last week. What will this week bring. Group riding averages seem to be going up already, and it’s only going to be the third ride of the official season!

          So come on out to Elmore for something different. Ride some quiet country roads with very light vehicular traffic. After the ride, riders may gather in front of the bike shop for drink and good conversation. Sign-in begins at 6:00 in front of the bike shop. I hope to see you then!
