Speedtrap Ride Tuesday May 7th recap
Twenty cyclists came to Elmore for the first official Speedtrap Ride of the 2019 season.
Scott Lang led the Ghost Pepper Riders over a 25-mile course. Doug Metzger from that group reported a riding average speed of 19.4 mph
Hugh Benning, substituting for Tony Mazurek, led the Habanero riders over the same course and reported a riding average of 17.4 mph.
Mark Radabaugh, Ben Durant, and I formed the Jalapeno Riders. We rode the shorter 22 miles, but with average speeds in the 13s and 14s, we were nowhere near our target average.
Marnie Arndt, Kathy Metzger, and Kathy Slovak were the Sweet Pepper Riders. They rode 22 miles at 13 mph
No rain fell during the ride and roads were dry. and all riders experienced a pleasant tailwind on the first leg of the ride. However, after they started the return heading northeast on SR 105, the headwind was brutal, with the temperature only about 50 degrees!
There were three first time Speedtrap riders: Rob Golden of Spoke Life Cycles, Mark Radabaugh, and Kathy Slovak.
Please join us next Tuesday, May 14th, for the next chapter of the Speedtrap Ride. We leave Spoke Life Cycles/Elmore(formerly Elmore Cycle and Fitness) at 6:30 pm. I hope to see you then.
