Speedtrap Ride Tuesday November 1st recap
Sunny skies, a mild temperature of 63 degrees, and a light WSW wind of 5 mph brought four intrepid cyclists(Jim Darr, Tony Mazurek, Scott Lang, Doug Kilpatrick) to Elmore Tuesday evening for the final Speedtrap Ride of 2022.
In addition, Claude Watkins arrived early to ride in more daylight . He was the only Sweet Pepper Rider. He rode the Lindsey loop ride in reverse. He reported a great 20-mile ride with an average speed of 14 mph.
Doug Kilpatrick, ride leader, bike shop specialist, TAB president, devoted family man, and Speedtrap comedian, filed the following account of his group's ride:
(Doug must be commended for the report’s accuracy!)
“4 of the bravest riders survived the terrible wind and frigid temperatures to complete the final Speedtrap of 2022…..The average speed was 25.1 mph or 20.5 depending on who you ask.”
The Speedtrap Ride, one of America’s great Tuesday night rides, deserves an accurate account of its people and events. If I am the one continuing as its ride captain, I hope my reporting is as accurate as Doug’s! With that in mind, the Speedtrap Ride, also the best Tuesday night ride out of Ottawa County, will resume on May 2, 2023. I hope to see you then!
