Speedtrap Ride Tuesday August 6th
The Speedtrap Ride will take place again this coming Tuesday, August 6th. Sign-in will begin at 6:00 pm and we’ll roll out at 6:30 from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore. I am sending this message early because we will have a cookout and potluck after the ride at the home of Scott Lang, 17579 west Elmore-Eastern Road. That is one mile, or less, from, the bike shop. Hamburgers, buns, and brats will be provided. If you plan to attend after the ride. Please bring some food to share. The pool and hot tub will be available.
The weather forecast for Tuesday is partly sunny with a high of 84 degrees. Winds will be WSW 10 to 15 mph. That’s not great for going out from Elmore, but it will make for a great return! There is a 30% chance of thunderstorms with gusty winds late in the day.
Scott will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders over a 25-mile course. He expects to average 22+ mph. Are you up to the challenge?
Bob Kayden will lead the Cayenne Pepper Riders over the same course, He expects to average 20 – 22 mph.
Tony Mazurek will lead the Habanero riders over the same 25-mile course, and expects to average 18 – 20 mph.
I will lead the Jalapeno Riders over a slightly shorter 22-mile course. We expect to average 16 – 18 mph.
Marnie Arndt will lead the Sweet Pepper riders on a ride at a speed and distance comfortable for those in her group.
Whether you’re coming for the after-the-ride cookout or not, why not give the Speedtrap Ride a try! You’ll ride some quiet country roads and with some great people, too! It is Ottawa County’s best Tuesday night ride! I hope to see you then!
