    TAB's Meandering Ride will take us out to Liberty Center and back this week for a 32-mile jaunt that will depart Whitehouse (across from Cyclewerks) at 8:00a. Expect an overall ride average speed of 13-15mph, but we adjust the pace for the group who shows up each week. Bring hydration and a snack, however we will be taking our quick break just outside of Grandma's General Store so you could also purchase an alternative if you decide you're not really feeling what you packed. The local weather stations are forecasting rain, so keep an eye on this post as Roger and I will communicate and cancelation as close to an hour before the ride as possible.

    Good Day,

    61 intrepid and excited riders showed up on a warm and breezy evening.  It was nothing short of a great start to the Thursday evening series. 

    We kept the rubber side down and all riders returned safely.  There were a couple of minor issues.  One flat reported from the Spicy Plus group.  All the elder statesmen of the group "advised" and "enlightened" a newer rider on the basics of a roadside tire repair.  There was also a wheel issue reported from "Spicy" group.  

    We did a good job of "taking care of our own" on this first night of the season.  Let's keep doing this for every ride this season. 

    Many thanks to our ride leaders and I look forward to many successful and safe rides this summer. 

    Reported Speeds: 

    Hot 1:  24.0

    Hot 2: 22.4

    Extra Spicy: 20.6

    Spicy Plus: 18.3

    Spicy: 16.4

    GLR: 14.4

    Speedtrap Ride Tuesday, May 17th

              Once again the Speedtrap Ride, one of America’s great Tuesday night rides, will depart from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio, at 6:30 pm tomorrow, Tuesday, May 17th. At ride time the temperature will be about 70 degrees, with a NW wind of 10mph. There will be practically no chance of precipitation.

    There will be five groups riding out on a 25-mile course[22 miles for the slower groups].

    Scott Lang will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders and will likely average close to 22 mph. Are you up to the challenge?!!!!!

    Bob Kayden will take out the Cayenne Pepper Riders at a slightly slower pace, 20 – 21 mph.

    Doug Kilpatrick will lead the Habanero Riders at 19 – 20 mph/

    Todd Pollock will ride out with his Jalapeno Riders and expects to average anywhere from 16 – 19 mph.

    I will ride out with anyone who would like to ride at a very casual pace, especially since it’s early in the season.

    Several riders may gather for drink and good conversation after the ride.

    Please join us for all the fun. Sign-in begins at 6:00 in front of the bike shop, and we roll out at 6:30 sharp. I hope to see you then!

    This Wednesday 5/18 is We Are Traffic's 13th Annual Toledo Ride of Silence from the University of Toledo. The Ride of Silence is a ride remembering and honoring those injured or killed on their bicycle and to bring greater awareness to cyclist's right to use the roadway. 

    As is our tradition, TAB is sponsoring a group ride to the start of the ride. We plan to leave at 6:00 from Tam 'O Shanter (at 7060 W Sylvania Ave, Sylvania OH). We’ll meet in the back parking lot and ride at a slow to moderate pace up the University Parks Trail to the University in time for the start of the Ride of Silence. After the Ride of Silence we will regroup and ride back together to Tam 'O. We are usually chasing the sun on the ride back so bring lights! Also, if you have TAB gear please wear it to show are support of We Are Traffic.

    If you can't make it to our group ride, take the time to attend if possible. Details are at:

    We had quite a good turnout the hot weather last Windsday. While not an exact count, Edgar’s A group had about 10 high speed riders averaging 22. My B/C group was pretty good sized at around 15-16 riders. We were less enthusiastic than last week at a solid 18.4. Still pretty good for this early in the season. And Kelly Trame also had a good sized C/D group of about 7-10 riders who had a sweet evening in the country.

    2 things here:

    1) The ride still needs regular leaders for the B & C groups, since I’m finished at the end of the month. And a Kelly wants an co-leader for her group. This is your club, come out and support the ride by helping to lead!

    2) The Ride of Silence, remembering and honoring those injured or killed on their bicycle and bring greater awareness to cyclist's right to use the roadway, is this Weds 5/18/22. There will be no Windsday Ride, instead we will ride to the ride of silence from Tam ‘O Shanter in Sylvania. Details will follow. It you can’t ride with us, please try to attend the ride.

    Every Sunday there will be a different off road ride scheduled at 8 am. The goal is to offer some additional ride options that take us off the beaten path and allow the riders opportunities to enjoy a little “dirt” therapy. Check the weekly calendar and this page for the start locations and routes. This Sunday May 15th will be the Towpath 2 and starts from the Azul tequila restaurant at 610 E Riverview Rd Napoleon Oh. Come join us for some off road fun for all riders!
