Speedtrap Ride Tuesday, August 13th recap
The Speedtrap Ride brought forty cyclists to Elmore last night for a fantastic ride through Ottawa, Sandusky, and Wood Counties.
Scott Lang and three other Ghost Pepper Riders, Rob Golden, Jason Moore, and George Byington, rode to what is likely a Speedtrap record: a riding average of 24.1 mph! This may also be a personal best for the four riders! Congratulations to all!
Bob Kayden was one of twelve cyclists(ten bikes—two were tandems) who formed the Cayenne Pepper Riders and reached Bob’s goal of 21.0 mph! Also congratulations!
Tony Mazurek’s Habanero Riders rode the same course at 19.9 mph. I think that’s his fastest of the season!
I rode out with five other Jalapeno Riders. Unfortunately, we split apart. Ray Purney, Ben Durant, and Mary Hecker went ahead and finished at 16.8 mph, as reported by Ray. Claude Watkins joined the Sweet Pepper Group, and I went looking for Colleen Hickey, who was all of a sudden not with us. Fortunately, she returned to Elmore safe and sound.
Marnie Arndt’s Sweet Pepper Riders rode 20 miles at 15.3 mph. No report from Becky Kayden and LeAnn Helle.
Pictured are two riders new to the Speedtrap Ride: Colleen Hickey, and Michelle Del Toro, with husband John. Welcome to the Speedtrap Ride!
Next Tuesday, August 20th, we will ride the 25-mile Peggy Avers route from Elmore. Attached is the cue sheet I have from two years ago. However, I will check all roads and send a final route, post it on ridewithgps, and send a link to it before next Tuesday. I hope to see you then!
