Claude Watkins reported a riding average of 15.1 mph for the Sweet Pepper Riders. Becky Kayden and Audrey Schnabel formed the Good Looking Pepper Riders and rode down the North Coast Inland Trail and back.[No report on their ride]
It was tandem night, but only one tandem rode. Dave Stover and Jana Loy reported a riding average of 19.4 mph. There is no picture because they left early[Isn’t that against TAB and Flatlander rules!?]
Pictured are first time Speedtrap Riders Abdu Aljendy(red helmet), Rick Nudd(white arm band), and Dave Fisher(gray shirt), who has reappered in my life after 35 years! Welcome all to the Speedtrap Ride!

Several riders gathered in front of the bike shop after the ride for drink and conversation.
