    Speedtrap Ride Tuesday June 14th

              The Speedtrap Ride, the best Tuesday night ride out of Ottawa County, will once again roll out tomorrow, Tuesday, June 14th, at 6:30 pm from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore.

              Scott Lang will be back to lead the Ghost Pepper Riders. If you ride in his group, expect to average 22+ mph. Are you up to the challenge?

              Bob Kayden will take out the Cayenne Pepper Riders and will likely average 21+ mph.

              Doug Kilpatrick is slated to take out the Habanero Riders at 20+ mph, and Todd Pollock is the leader of the Jalapeno Riders at 16 – 19 mph. There may be some shuffling of ride leaders as some are preparing for the Michigan Mountain Mayhem this coming weekend.

              I will ride out with anyone who would like to ride at a more casual pace. We will form the Sweet Pepper Riders.

              The weather at ride time appears to be favorable: 84 degrees, less than a 10% chance of rain, and SE winds at 9 mph.

              Come on out to Elmore, and ride some quiet country roads, and meet some great people, too! Sign-in begins at 6:00 in front of the bike shop. I hope to see you then!

    We will ride from Whitehouse starting across from Cycle Werks Monday 6/13 at 6:30. If there are enough riders we will have 3 groups 20+ mph, 18-20 mph and 14-16mph. If we do not have enough we will combine the 2 faster groups and try and keep it under 21 mph.

    This Saturday the Adventure Ride will depart Whitehouse at 8am from Cycle Werks. We will be riding to the Red Rambler in Wauseon. For those that don’t want coffee there are many other places within a block or so to grab a snack and drinks. The weather will be perfect and the predicted west wind will push us all the way back to Whitehouse. The pace will 18-20, but that will adjusted to ability of the group. This is a no drop Ride. I am looking to another great ride with you all.
