Speedtrap Ride Tuesday September 24th recap
The final official Speedtrap Ride of the season drew thirty cyclists to Elmore yesterday, Tuesday, September 24th, for a great ride.
The weather was almost perfect, with temperatures in the 70s. There was a slight headwind on the first leg of the ride, but not much really to be too concerned about.
Scott Lang led the Ghost Pepper Riders and reported a riding average of 22.4 mph
Dave Stover, substituting for Bob Kayden, rode the only tandem on the ride, with Jana Loy, and led the Cayenne Pepper Riders with a 20.5 mph average.
Tony Mazurek led the Habanero Riders and reported 19.8 mph
I rode out with two other Jalapeno Riders, Claude Watkins and Ben Durant. We stayed pretty much together . My Garmin said 16.3 mph when we arrived back in Elmore.
John Galdeen, substituting for Marnie, led some Sweet Pepper Riders to a 15.8 mph average.
Marnie Arndt was running late, but it all worked out for her as she rode with Dan Waggoner, who rode in from Fremont.
New to the Speedtrap Ride this week was Daniel Leone, who is pictured. He rode in the Ghost Pepper Rider group. Welcome Daniel!
Some riders did enjoy food, drink, and good conversation after the ride at the Portage Inn in Elmore.
Thank you to all the ride leaders, and substitutes, and riders, who made the riding season a great one! Although the official rides are over for the 2019 season, that doesn’t mean we can’t ride some unofficial rides. For those who would like, there will be an unofficial Speedtrap Ride next Tuesday, October 1st, at 6:00 pm. I hope to see you then!
