Speedtrap Ride Tuesday, September 24th
The Speedtrap Ride, Ottawa County’s best Tuesday night ride, will make its final official run of the 2019 season tomorrow, Tuesday, September 24th. All cyclists will gather at Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore and roll out at 6:10 pm.
Scott Lang will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders on a 25-mile ride. If you ride in his group, expect to average 22+ mph. Are you ready for the challenge?
A substitute ride leader is needed for the Cayenne Pepper Riders, since the Kaydens have left for their six-month trip. Will you volunteer? Riding average for the group is 20 to 22 mph.
Tony Mazurek will lead the Habanero Riders. His group will likely average 18 to 20 mph.
I will lead the Jalapeno Riders over a slightly shorter 22-mile course. We expect to average 16 to 17 mph.
Marnie Arndt will lead the Sweet Pepper Riders over a distance and at a speed comfortable for those in her group.
The weather is predicted to be very favorable, mostly sunny, with a high temperature of 77 degrees, Winds will be WSW at 10 to 15 mph, but this should make the return-to-Elmore portion of the ride fun.
After the ride, some riders may gather at the Portage Inn in Elmore for food, drink, and good conversation.
Here is your last chance to ride some quiet country roads with some excellent riders who happen to be super-nice people, too. The Speedtrap Ride is a TAB and a Flatlanders ride, a joint venture of the two clubs….not a common occurrence. Let’s close out the season with a great ride. Sign-in begins at 5:40 pm and we ride at 6:10. I hope to see you then!
