The Speedtrap Ride brought thirty-seven riders to Elmore last night.
Scott Lang led the Ghost Pepper Riders and reported a riding average of 22.5 mph.
John Del Toro(filling in for Bob Kayden) reported a 20.4 mph average for his Cayenne Pepper Riders.
The Habanero Riders were led by John Wodarski(filling in for Doug Kilpatrick). John reported a riding average of 19.3 mph.
Todd Pollack reported a 16.9 mph average for his Jalapeno Riders.
Marnie Arndt, founder of the Speedtrap Ride, Claude Watkins and I formed the Sweet Pepper Riders. My Garmin indicated a 13.9 mph average speed.
There was a slight headwind for much of the ride returning to Elmore, but it didn’t seem to be an issue for anyone.
As expected, several riders gathered in front of the bike shop after the ride for music, drink, and good conversation.
There were four riders new to the Speedtrap Ride this week. They are pictured:
Todd Anderson(orange jersey), Matt Daugherty(white jersey), Mike Larson(black and white jersey), and Nicole Reece(Five Boro Bike Tour jersey). Welcome all to the Speedtrap Ride!
Please join us for all the fun next Tuesday, June 22, on the next round of the Speedtrap Ride. Sign-in begins at 6:00 in front of the bike shop, and we roll out at 6:30 pm. I hope to see you then.
Coming July 6th: Speedtrap Ride in Reverse. No, you won’t have to ride your bike backwards!
