Speedtrap Ride Tuesday, August 6th recap
Nineteen cyclists came to Elmore this past Tuesday evening for the Speedtrap Ride.
The relatively small number of riders is most likely because for a few hours before the ride, there were heavy rains on and off throughout the area. However, the weather cooperated with those nineteen riders. Wind was hardly a factor; the sun was shining; there was dry pavement on most of the route. Those who didn’t ride missed a beautiful evening and a great ride!
As you can see, rainy weather in the area doesn’t mean the ride will be rainy.
Scott Lang’s Ghost Pepper Riders and Bob Kayden’s Cayenne Pepper Riders rode together as a group of twelve and reported a 22.3 mph average.
Tony Mazurek was one of four Habanero Riders and reported a 19.4 mph average.
Claude Watkins, Marnie Arndt, and I formed a combined Jalapeno-Sweet Pepper Group. We stayed together and rode at a 14.8
After the ride, several riders, spouses, and friends, enjoyed a cookout and potluck at the home of Scott Lang, complete with hamburgers, brats, pool and hot tub! Thank you, Scott, for inviting us all to your home and for hosting! Pictured are some of the partiers. Rob Golden, Doug Metzger, Debra Lohr, and Mike Meiser, Steve Siesel, Claude Watkins.
So please join us next Tuesday, August 13th, as the next chapter of the Speedtrap Ride rolls out from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore! I hope to see you then!
P.S.#1 On Tuesday, September 3rd, there will be a Speedtrap Special. We will all ride as one group at a conversational pace over the Flatlanders’ Thursday evening Fun Ride route. Doug Metzger will bring the boom box and play his rock and roll playlist.
P.S. #2 There has been a suggestion to ride the 25-mile Peggy Avers route that the Flatlanders did a couple of years ago. I am proposing Tuesday, August 20th, for this. We will discuss it this coming Tuesday. Comments are welcome!
