Hello friends! Just a friendly reminder that the next Three Speed Ride will be occurring in just two days! And this time you can’t use the weather for an excuse not to attend, as it will be the Three Speed Ride with the most beautiful weather yet! Sunny, high of 83F (28C if you are that way) which makes it the second warmest Three Speed Ride yet!*
A few details to note:
- Since it’s so warm, iced tea is fine.
- Meet IN Ladd’s Circle. “In Ladd’s Circle” is not the same thing as “in front of Palio.”
- The date of the next Three Speed Ride will be announced!
- Special discounted membership rate for Society of Three Speeds for anyone who completes the ride. (Emphasis on “complete.”)
And without further ado, the deets:
THREE SPEED RIDE
Sunday 5 May 2013
Meet at Ladd’s Circle, Portland (SE 16th Ave and SE Harrison St)
A ride celebrating the humble internally geared three speed bicycle! Bring your trusty three speed or other internal hub gear bicycle. (If you don’t have one, it doesn’t matter, just come! But if you had the choice between a high-performance crabon fibre racer and an old beater, bring the beater.)
Casual paced ramble of up to 10 miles, mostly flat. Picnic and tea spot at/near end, bring hot tea or a way to make tea. Emphasis on making tea. We’ll be stopping by a market for supplies before the picnic stop.
This ride will be a bit shorter than the March ride, and less emphasis on “rough stuff” and more emphasis on a leisurely spring cruise. And like last time, we will definitely be ending somewhere to enjoy adult beverages.
*The warmest was the one last August, which pushed 100F. Not pleasant, though.
