I’ve been hosting the Three Speed October Challenge since 2016. The concept of the challenge is simple: Ride your three speed during the month of October! Here are the basic stipulations of this challenge:
- Ride a three speed bicycle
- Three times a week
- At least three miles (5 km) each trip
- For at least three weeks during the duration of the challenge
- During a five-week period that centers around the month of October
This year the challenge will happen from Sunday September 26 to Sunday October 31st. Just like 2020, the challenge will be done by mail-in reporting. When you register you’ll be sent an Official Reporting Journal. You’ll record your rides in the journal and send it back to me (you pay postage for shipping to me). You’ll get the journal returned to you when I ship the prize pack.
And now is a perfect time to register for the challenge! Head over to my Etsy Shop where you can register for just $25 plus shipping/handling/fees. If you successfully complete the challenge, you’ll get a patch and two stickers! And you can totally start the challenge before you receive the reporting journal, just check out full rules here.
Now hop to it, folks!
