#threespeedoct2017 Week 1, Ride 2, 6.8 miles-01.jpeg

Yes, friends! The final Three Speed Ride of 2017 will happen this weekend! The date Sunday October 8 at 11:30 AM, depart at noon. 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.

A few items to note!

  • It will be a 20 mile leisurely cruise around the lowlands of the Columbia River.
  • As per tradition, 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.
  • The weather is going to be okay, party sunny with temps in the mid 60’s. Yes, there is a chance of rain in the AM, but just bring a rain cape because this ride is rain-or-shine.
  • Ride 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 three speed ride is open to ALL bikes. So no excuses! πŸ˜‰ But as always, if you have the choice between a crabon-fibred machine and a Huffy, go with the Huffy.
  • And yes, you can count this ride towards the Three Speed October challenge!

See you Sunday!
