Speedtrap Ride Tuesday May 2nd
The Speedtrap Ride, one of America’s great Tuesday night rides, will have its official first ride of the season tomorrow, Tuesday, May 2nd, leaving Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio, at 6:30 pm. Weather predictions. however, do not appear to be favorable for this ride: a temperature in the low 40s, a 20 mph WNW wind, and a 45% chance of showers.
The regular groups from last year are scheduled to return:
Scott Lang’s Ghost Pepper Riders, averaging 22+/- mph.
Bob Kayden’s Cayenne Pepper Riders, averaging 21 +/- mph.
Doug Kilpatrick’s Habanero Riders, averaging 19 -20+ mph.
Todd Pollock’s Jalapeno Riders, averaging 16 – 19 mph.
I plan to lead the Sweet Pepper Riders, but at this point I do not plan to be in Elmore for the Speedtrap Ride until May 23rd.
If turnout is low because of poor weather, groups may be combined and leaders may be changed.
Sign-in will take place inside Spoke Life Cycles Elmore, or out on the table in front of the bike shop.
