    Speedtrap Ride Tuesday April 11th

              The Speedtrap Ride, one of America’s great Tuesday night rides, will hove another pre-season unofficial ride tomorrow, Tuesday, April 11th. Riders will depart Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio, at 6:30 pm.

              Please remember that this is an unofficial ride. Regular ride leaders are not required to be present. Riding groups will be formed and leaders will be chosen from those who show up to ride.

              The weather is predicted to be very favorable for an April ride: sunny skies, a temperature in the low 70s, and a WSW wind of 12 – 13 mph. There should be a nice tailwind for most of the return trip to Elmore.

    Sunset will be at 8:09 pm, so most riders will probably have returned to Elmore by then, However, any slower riders may want to have lights just in case there is an unexpected delay!

    Pictured are Habanero Riders from September 6, 2022.

    This Saturdays adventure ride will be the famous Packos ride. We leave from Cyclewerks in Whitehouse at 9 am and ride to the original Packos location where we will enjoy Hungarian hotdogs. The route is 40 miles across some difficult roads so you might want to ride the gravel bike. The pace will be 16 to 18 mph.

    Speedtrap Ride Tuesday April 4th

              The Speedtrap Ride, the best Tuesday night ride out of Ottawa County, will begin its 2023 season with four unofficial rides on the four Tuesdays in April.

    The first will be tomorrow, April 4th, leaving Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore at 6:30 pm.

              As with any unofficial ride, regular ride leaders are not required to be there. Riding groups and leaders for those groups will be determined by those who show up to ride.

              For ride time the temperature is predicted to be in the low 50s, with cloudy skies and an east wind of 12 mph. Sunset will be right about 8:00, so any slower riders should really have lights.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be running the Westerly starting tomorrow. I'll be leaving at 6pm. Sunset is at 8pm so lights and hi-vis is a must. I want to clarify that I usually ride at 16 to 18 mph depending on how I'm feeling and the weather. The weather is supposed to be sweet tomorrow with 52 degrees at the start. Looks like a southerly breeze at 10 to 15 out of the SSE.

    I will check the weather at 7:30 to determine if we will ride the adventure ride tomorrow.

    The Meandering Ride will depart from Whitehouse this Saturday, Apr 1st at 9:00a (meet up just across from Cycle Werks). We have selected one of my favorite 27-mile loops for our first ride of 2023. Looking at the forecast it'll be a little bit of a battle heading out, but that return will be SUPER SWEET!! Be sure to bring hydration and a snack (or two) for our mid-ride break. The average pace is targeted at 13-15mph for the overall route. Hope you can join us (Kenneth Shaw & I) for our OPENING DAY!!
