Hello friends! It is Tuesday, April 2nd, the second day of this year’s Three Speed Adventure April Challenge. So far, eight fine three speeders have signed up!
And we have our first report of the event (sort of) by Happy Little Three Speed. To answer the questions brought up in that blog post:
- It’s not about average grade, it’s about actual grade. So, look at the grade chart on the bottom of the map. Whatever section is 5% or greater is good for the challenge. And if the hill isn’t long enough, ride back down, ride back up, rinse, lather, repeat until you have enough.
- The distance challenge (15 miles or more) can have stops in it, like for lunch. The total ride just needs to be at or greater than 15 miles.
Okay! I hope more of you accept the challenge. Remember, you still need to sign up for the challenge and adhere to the rules. You can do that over here.
Finally, since someone asked: Yes, it HAS to be a three, four, or five speed internally geared bike. No, you can’t ride a single speed. This isn’t the Society of One Speed!
