Speedtrap Ride Tuesday July 23rd
The Speedtrap Ride, Ottawa County’s best Tuesday night ride, will roll out once again from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore tomorrow, Tuesday, July 23rd, at 6:30 pm.
Scott Lang will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders on a 25-mile ride. If you ride with his group, expect a riding average of 22+ mph. Are you up to the challenge?!
Dan Waggoner will be filling in for Bob Kayden(who is working in Oklahoma. How can this be? He is retired.) to lead the Cayenne Pepper Riders over the same course. Riding average will be 20 – 22 mph.
Tony Mazurek will lead the Habanero Riders, also over the same course with a riding average of 18 – 20 mph.
I will lead the Jalapeno riders on a slightly shorter 22-mile ride. We expect to average 16 + mph.
Marnie Arndt will be on hand to take the Sweet Pepper Riders on a ride over a distance and at a speed comfortable for those in her group.
The weather looks good for the ride. Predicted is a high of 79 degrees, winds NNW at 5 to 10 mph, and only a 20% chance of rain.
As has been the custom all season, some riders will likely gather at the Portage Inn in Elmore after the ride for food, drink, and good conversation.
It is Tandem Night #2. Bring that tandem and ride with a partner! Pictures of all tandems, their captains, and their stokers, will be taken.
With favorable weather why not come out to Elmore and give the Speedtrap Ride a try! You’ll ride some quiet country roads with some great people, too! Sign-in begins at 6:00, and we ride at 6:30 pm!
I hope to see you then!
