Speedtrap Ride Tuesday September 6th recap
Forty intrepid cyclists came to Elmore Tuesday night for the September 6th edition of the Speedtrap Ride. Pleasant temperatures and practically no wind made for a great ride by all. Riders rode the regular Speedtrap route in reverse.
Scott Lang’s Ghost Pepper Riders and Bob Kayden’s Cayenne Pepper Riders rode as one group and returned with a riding average of 23.7 mph! Doug Kilpatrick reported an average of 22.0 mph for his Habanero Riders. They’re getting pretty fast!!!! Todd Pollock indicated leading 8 Jalapeno Riders to an 18.4 mph. Claude Watkins of the Sweet Pepper Riders said the group had a 16.0 mph average.
Four Triking Cherry Pepper Riders reported a pleasant 11-mile ride down the North Coast Inland Trail and back.
There was one new Speedtrap Rider: Sean Miller. He is pictured in the orange jersey. Welcome Sean to the Speedtrap Ride!
As has been customary, several riders gathered in front of the bike shop after the ride for drink and good conversation, and to celebrate Kathy Metzger’s birthday, Happy Birthday Kathy!
Also pictured is Dan Willis as he attempts to ride his bike backwards. Thank you Kathy Metzger for two of those photos. Todd Pollock provided photos of Jalapeno Riders on the road and Alan Frishman furnished the shot of Habanero Riders. Thank you Todd and Alan!
