(blows off dust)(coughs)
Yes, it’s been a pretty quiet summer on the Three Speed Front, especially since the last Three Speed Ride in June was pretty much a bust. But that’s about to change! I’ll be releasing deets about Three Speed October very soon. But first, details about the next (and probably last) full Three Speed Ride of 2017.
This ride will happen Sunday October 8 at 11:30 AM. We’ll meet at the Paul Bunyan Statue in the Kenton neighborhood of North Portland. This is at the intersection of N Interstate and Denver Aves, near Argyle St and just across from the Kenton/N Denver Ave MAX station on the Yellow Line.
We’ll depart from Paul at noon. We’ll then depart on a 20 mile leisurely cruise around the lowlands of the Columbia River. We’ll do a tea stop (byo tea and snacks) somewhere down the line, then end at a place (or two) with food and (adult) beverages.
This ride is rain-or-shine. Not a loop, but will end near transit.
Oh yeah, this one will be an “open” category ride. This means while three speed hub geared bikes are preferred, this one is open to ALL bikes. So no excuses! 😉 But as always, if you have the choice between a crabon-fibred machine and a Huffy, go with the Huffy.
While this may be the last “full” ride of 2017, I’m not ruling out the possibility of a winter get together and/or pub crawl. A three speed event for every season!
