Speedtrap Ride Tuesday May 21st recap
The Speedtrap Ride attracted twenty-five riders to Elmore this past Tuesday, May 21st.
Scott Lang led the Ghost Pepper Riders over a 25-mile course and reported an average of 20.9 mph.
Tony Mazurek led the Habanero Riders over the same course and reported 18.1 mph
The Jalapenos were the most disconnected group of the evening. Ron Berry and I started out as the only two. At the half-way point, Mike Meiser, from another group, still not recovered, decided to take the short cut back to Elmore. Ron Berry’s tire was low, so he rode back with Mike. Mark Radabaugh was dropped by the Habaneros, and rode back with me, who was feeling unusually exhausted. We averaged 13.9 mph.
Marnie Arndt led the Sweet Pepper Riders and rode 20.8 miles at 13.1 mph.
Adam Silbaugh was a first-time Speedtrap Rider. He rode in the Sweet Pepper group. Welcome Adam!
The weather was not quite as good as last week. The was a slight tailwind on the first leg of the ride and a slight headwind on the return, with the temperature in the upper 50s.
Please join us next Tuesday, May 28th, for the next Speedtrap Ride. The long-range forecast is for warmer weather, and all riders hopefully will be in better form. We roll out at 6:30 pm. I hope to see you then!
