Speedtrap Ride Tuesday June 11th recap
Nearly perfect riding weather attracted a record crowd to the Speedtrap Ride last evening, Tuesday, June 11th Forty-six riders demonstrated why the Speedtrap Ride is the best Tuesday night ride out of Ottawa County.
Scott Lang led the Ghost Pepper Riders and reported a 22.9 mph riding average, although Dan Willis said his was 23.0 mph.
Tony Mazurek led the Habanero Riders and reported a 19.3 mph average.
I led six other Jalapeno Riders. Riding averages reported ranged from 16.3 mph(mine—I slowed terribly on the overpasses) to 16.9 mph(Ray Purney)
Marnie Arndt’s Sweet Pepper Riders split into three groups. Marnie’s group rode 20 miles at 15.4 mph. A second group went ahead, and finished with 16.4 mph(They’ll probably ride with the Jalapenos next time). Becky Kayden and JoAnne Cousino formed a third group and rode 17 miles at 12 mph.
The evening's ride included several new Speedtrap riders: JoAnne Cousino, Lisa and Steve Dickens, Justin Hart and his father Bill Hart, Terry Butler, Diane and Larry Dunbar, and Candy Langoria. Welcome all to the Speedtrap Ride!
All are pictured, except Candy Langoria(I’ll get his picture next time).
As has been the case all season, several riders gathered at the Portage Inn in Elmore after the ride for food, drink, and good conversation.
Please join us next Tuesday, June 18th, for the next roll-out of the Speedtrap Ride. We ride from Spoke Life Cycles/Elmore at 6:30 pm.
I hope to see you then!
