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.

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