Speedtrap Ride Tuesday May 30th recap

          Warm late spring weather brought forty-one hardy cyclists to Elmore Tuesday night for the May 30th edition of the Speedtrap Ride.

          Scott Lang led the Ghost Pepper Riders and reported an average of 22.7 mph.

          Bob Kayden and his Cayenne Pepper Riders rode to a 20.7 mph average.

          Doug Kilpatrick took out his Habanero Riders and returned averaging 19.5 mph.

          The Jalapeno Riders, led by Todd Pollock, started out with nine riders, picked up two, then lost one, and returned with an average of 17.3 mph.

          There were at least nine Sweet Pepper Riders, all at various speeds. Dave Stoiber from that group reported 16.0 mph.

There was a moderate headwind, with occasional gusts, on most of the return route to Elmore. All groups posted lower averages than last week because of the wind.

There were four riders new to the Speedtrap Ride. They are pictured: Joe Belich(Hammer jersey-thank you Kathy Metzger for that photo), Tom Kyllo(green/black jersey), Deyo Hasbrouck(thumbs up) and Jessica Hansen, Jessica’s first time was actually two weeks ago, but I wasn’t there to get her picture. Welcome all to the Speedtrap Ride.

Also pictured are some Jalapeno Riders on the road. And could that be Todd and Chuck in the same photo??!! Thank you Todd for those!

After the ride, several gathered in front of the bike shop to celebrate the forthcoming birth of Rob and Carrie Golden’s newest child. Congratulations Rob and Carrie!

Please join us next Tuesday, June 6th, for the next chapter of the Speedtrap Ride. The long-range forecast is calling for a high of 79 degrees, but still a NNE wind of 12 mph. I hope to see you then.
