Speedtrap Ride Tuesday May 30th
The Speedtrap Ride, one of America’s great Tuesday night rides, will roll out again tomorrow, Tuesday, May 30th, at 6:30 pm from Spoke Life Cycles in Elmore, Ohio. The weather prediction for tomorrow at ride time is sunny skies, a 7% chance of rain, a temperature in the low 80s, and an east wind of 12 mph. That east wind will likely produce a slight headwind on much of the return trip to Elmore.
Scott Lang will lead the Ghost Pepper Riders over a 25-mile course. If you ride in his group, expect to average 23 mph.
Bob Kayden will take out his Cayenne Pepper Riders over the same course, and will likely average 21 – 22 mph.
Doug Kilpatrick and his Habanero Riders will cover the same course at 20+ mph.
Todd Pollock, although he could ride in a much faster group, will lead the Jalapeno Riders at anywhere from 16 – 19 mph.
I will be on hand for the Sweet Pepper Riders, who last week rode at 16 mph.

Why not spice up your weekly riding schedule with something different. Ride some quiet country roads and meet some great people, too! Elmore is no farther than Whitehouse from many parts of the Toledo Metro area.
Sign-in begins at 6:00 in front of the bike shop. I hope to see you then!
PS There may be a special celebration after the ride.
