Speedtrap Ride Tuesday September 20th
Hardy Cyclists: The Speedtrap Ride, one of America’s great Tuesday night rides, will roll out again this coming Tuesday, September 20th from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio, at 6:10 pm. The weather looks to be favorable for riding: a temperature in the low 80s, a SSW wind of 6 mph, and practically no chance of rain. Sunset will be at 7:33 pm, so front and rear lights are highly recommended, especially for slower riders.
Scott Lang will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders. If you ride in his group, expect to average 23+/- mph. Are you ready for the adrenalin rush!
Bob Kayden will lead his Cayenne Pepper Riders. Averages for his group have been 22 – 23+ mph lately.
Doug Kilpatrick will take out his Habanero Riders at 20 to 21+ mph.
Todd Pollock will lead the Jalapeno Riders at anywhere from 17 to 19 mph.
Those who would like to ride at a more casual pace will be the Sweet Pepper Riders, and will likely average 16+ mph.
The Speedtrap Ride is a TAB ride in cooperation with the Flatlanders Bike Club. It’s a great opportunity to ride some quiet country roads and to meet some great people you might not ordinarily ride with. Just one more official ride of the season after this one, so why not come out to Elmore and give it a try!
This week we’ll be celebrating Bob Kayden’s 70th birthday. Earlier in the day there will be a 7-mile run and a 45-mile bike ride as part of the celebration, and after the ride there will be food provided by Becky Kayden, along with good conversation!
Sign-in begins at 5:40 in front of the bike shop. I hope to see you then!

Speedtrap Update: Speedtrap Ride is still on, but Bob's birthday celebration events are cancelled due to an unforeseen medical issue. Hopefully celebration events will take place September 27th.
