Speedtrap Ride September 3rd recap
The Speedtrap Ride brought thirty cyclists to Elmore to ride, just for one night, the Flatlanders’ Thursday Night Fun Ride route. We all rode as one group, and based on the comments I heard, it was a fun time for all! My Garmin indicated 20.4 miles with a riding average of 14.7 mph.
The weather was perfect, with a temperature of about 80 degrees at ride time. Winds were predicted to be strong, but they were not a factor at all!
New to the Speedtrap Ride this week were veteran TAB member Jim Binns and his wife Laura, and Ann Hirzel. Welcome to the Speedtrap Ride! They are pictured.
After the ride, several riders stayed for a celebration of Kathy Metzger’s birthday! Kathy is pictured in the Kitten jersey(a Flatlanders tradition), and with her birthday cake! Happy Birthday Kathy!
A special Thank You to Doug Metzger for leading the ride(I didn’t know the route) and for providing the rock-and-roll music(even if we didn’t hear Air Supply until we were back in Elmore!)
A Great Job Doug!
And Thank You to Bob Kayden for suggesting that we do this ride!
Please join us next Tuesday, September 10th, for the next chapter of the Speedtrap Ride. We’ll be riding the regular route, and we should roll out by 6:10 pm, with sign-in beginning at 5:40. I hope to see you then!
