Speedtrap Ride Tuesday August 22nd recap
The Speedtrap Ride brought thirty-two hardy cyclists to Elmore Tuesday night for a slightly windy bit enjoyable evening of cycling.
Scott Lang, Bob Kayden, and Tony Mazurek, leaders of their respective groups: the Ghost Pepper Riders, the Cayenne Pepper Riders, and the Habanero Riders, all reported a riding average of 22.3 mph. Groups rode together where possible.
David Barret, substituting for Todd Pollock, led eleven Jalapeno Riders to a 19.1 mph average. Thank you, David, for leading!
The Sweet Pepper Riders split into two groups. Claude Watkins reported an average of 17.6 mph for his group. Marnie Arndt rode with Ron and Joyce Purk and reported 13.6 mph
Several riders gathered in front of the bike shop after the ride for drink and good conversation.
There were no riders new to the Speedtrap Ride this week. However, pictured are two riders who have played big roles for the Speedtrap Ride: Marnie Arndt, co-founder of the Speedtrap Ride, and Rob Golden, owner of Spoke Life Cycles. Thank you Marnie and Rob!
For next Tuesday, August 29th, the long-range weather forecast is for a pleasant evening of riding: a temperature in the upper 70s, partly cloudy skies, a west wind of 10 mph, and only a 24% chance of rain. It looks like a pizza party is planned for after the ride!, Sounds like a fun night all the way around!
I hope to see you then!
