Speedtrap Ride Tuesday October 25th recap
Enough daylight and a temperature of 73 degrees brought seven intrepid cyclists to Elmore Tuesday evening for an unofficial Speedtrap Ride.
Doug Kilpatrick led a group ride with four other riders: David St. Louis, Jason Moore, Bryan Rose, and Tony Mazurek. All reported a great ride, but Doug indicated there was no tailwind on any portion of the ride, no matter which way the group was riding! Doug also indicated a riding average speed of 21.4 mph.
Claude Watkins and I rode together. We left early, but rode only to Woodville and back, as my arm and shoulder still have some healing to do. Nevertheless, Claude said he was glad he got the ride in, and that he was sorry to see the summer end.
Pictured is Claude Watkins as he appeared September 25, 2018. Claude missed only one official ride and one unofficial ride during the 2022 riding season. Perhaps he was the most regular(except for possibly some leaders) of all Speedtrap Riders.
It appears that we may get one more unofficial Speedtrap Ride in next Tuesday, November 1st. The long range forecast calls for sunny skies, a WSW wind of 5 mph, a high temperature of 67 degrees, and little chance of rain. Sunset will be at 6:27 pm, so front and rear lights will be necessary. Perhaps I’ll see you then!
