    TAB's Meandering Ride starts this Saturday (Oct 1st) out of Whitehouse (across from CycleWerks) at 9am.

    NOTE: 9AM START TIME for October!!

    We thought we might head north and visit Secor Park & Oak Openings utilizing a counter-clockwise route to change things up to make it interesting. Bring hydration (yes even though it's getting colder we still need to hydrate) and a snack for our rest stop.

    This is 1 of the 4 remaining Meandering Rides of 2022. We hope you can come out to join us!!

    The last Thursday ride of 2022.  Sigh…… 

    Another cool evening ride.  Temperature at the start will be 58, dropping to 52 by the time we finish.  Winds will be out of the ENE at 7mph gusting to 8mph. Feels cold already. Review your kit and make sure you dress accordingly.  

    We need ride leaders tonight for Hot 1 and Hot 2.  If you're willing and interested, let me know.  Text 419 376 8347 (identify yourself) or email jpeltier823@gmail.com. 

    Sunset is 7:20 pm.  Lights, front and rear, are VERY highly recommended.  We need to be visible to the people driving the vehicles on our route.  Without lights, a cyclist is basically invisible to a motorist.

    Speedtrap Ride Tuesday September 27th

              Intrepid Cyclists: The Speedtrap Ride, one of America’s great Tuesday night rides, will make its final official run of the 2022 season this Tuesday, September 27th, from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio, at 6:00 pm! We will however, wait for bike shop folks to close the store and get to the ride.

              Scott Lang will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders and will average 22 – 23+mph. Are you ready for the adrenalin rush!

              Bob Kayden will take out his Cayenne Pepper Riders. Average speed lately has been very close to that of the Ghost Pepper Riders.

              Doug Kilpatrick will lead his Habanero Riders at a riding average of 20 – 21 mph.

              Todd Pollock and his Jalapeno Riders will likely average 17 – 19 mph.

    All others who would like to ride at a more casual pace will form the Sweet Pepper Riders and will likely average 16+ mph.

              Although delayed one week, after the ride we will celebrate Bob Kayden’s 70th birthday in Speedtrap fashion. There will be walking tacos and cake provided by Becky Kayden, along with the usual drink and good conversation.

              At ride time, the temperature will be in the upper 50s with a WNW wind of 12 mph. It will be mostly cloudy with a 15% chance of precipitation. Sunset will be at 7:20 pm, so front and rear lights are highly recommended, especially for slower riders,

    The Speedtrap Ride is sponsored by the Toledo Area Bicyclists(TAB) and the Flatlanders Bike Club. It’s a great way to meet some fine people and to ride some quiet country roads, too! So come on out and help close out the regular reason with a great ride and Bob’s birthday celebration.

              Pictured is regular Speedtap Rider Loren Moore, as he appeared September 18, 2018. He has been riding strong!

              Sign-in begins at 5:30 in front of the bike shop. I hope to see you then!

    TAB Monday Whitehouse 9/26 will leave at 6 pm sharp from Cycle Werks. There will be an 18-20 and 20 plus group if there are enough rider’s otherwise we will combine at 19-21. This will be our last Monday night ride. Would be a good idea to bring a light.

    Speedtrap Ride Tuesday September 20th recap

              The Speedtrap Ride brought thirty-seven hardy cyclists to Elmore Tuesday night for  its September 20th edition. The temperature was mild, but most reported a brutal wind most of the way.

              Dan Willis(substituting for Scott Lang) led the Ghost Pepper Rider. Rob Golden from that group reported a riding average of 22.3 mph.

              Dave Stover(filling in for Bob Kayden) led the Cayenne Pepper Riders with a 22.1 mph average

              Doug Kilpatrick and his Habanero Riders rode to a 20.1 mph average.

              Todd Pollock led eight Jalapeno Riders and reported a 17.7 mph average for his group.

              There were four Sweet Pepper Riders. Claude Watkins reported a 16 mph average.

              Four Triking Cherry Pepper Riders rode down the North Coast Inland Trail and back.

              After the ride, several riders and friends gathered in front of the bike shop for drink and good conversation, well into the darkness.

              There were no riders new to the Speedtrap Ride, but pictured is regular Speedtrap Rider Kathy Metzger as she appeared in the kitten jersey September 3, 2019. We celebrated her birthday two weeks ago, but was not pictured. Also pictured are some Jalapeno Riders on the road. Thank you Todd Pollock for that photo!

              Please join us next Tuesday, September 27th, for the last official Speedtrap Ride of the season. Our official ride time will be 6:00 pm, but we will wait a few minutes for the bike shop folks to close the shop and get out to the ride. There will be a mixture of clouds and sun, with a high temperature of 60 degrees. The sun will set, however, at 7:20 pm, so front and rear lights are highly recommended, especially for slower riders. Sign-in begins at 5:30 in front of the bike shop, I hope to see you then!
