Speedtrap Ride Tuesday August 2nd recap

          The Speedtrap Ride brought thirty-nine hardy cyclists to Elmore this past Tuesday, August 2nd, for what was a great night to ride!

          Scott Lang led a combined Ghost Pepper/Cayenne Pepper Rider  group to a 22.4 mph average.

          The Habanero group did not exist because riders normally in that group chose to either move up a group or down a group.

          John Del Toro led the Jalapeno Rider group to a 19.1 mph average. Thank you John for leading this week!   

          The Sweet Pepper Riders rode a slightly shorter course. Ron Purk from that group reported an average of 15.5 mph.

          Becky and Audrey again formed the Good Looking Pepper Riders. There were also four “Triking Cherry Pepper Riders”(on recumbent tricycles). Both groups did their own rides down the North Coast Inland Trail and back.

          After the ride, several gathered in front of the bike shop for good conversation, drink, and pizza provided by the Flatlanders Bike Club. A great time was had by all! Thank you Flatlanders! Many riders stayed an hour or more well past sunset!

          Before riders actually rode out, Doug Kilpatrick reminded riders how important it is to ride safely and to be watchful for anything that might go wrong. He also stressed the need for cyclists to stay to the right of the yellow line and to be on the lookout for motorists who could be a danger to cyclists. All of this in light of the cycling tragedy on the Make-A-Wish ride in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

          Pictured are first-time Speedtrap Riders Quentin Jensen(blue shirt) and Joe Parse(coffee shirt). Welcome to the Speedtrap Ride!

          Please join us next Tuesday, August 9th, as the Speedtrap Ride rolls out once again from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio. I hope to see you then!
