As spring creeps into summer, now is a good time to put on some longer rides. And also a good time to revisit some rides I've done in the past. I've only done the Stark Street Mileposts ride once before, during Pedalpalooza in June of 2017. It was a fun one, so why not do... Continue Reading →
Society of Three Speeds is proud to announce that we’ll be hosting our first ever workshop! This class will be taught by expert mechanic Patrick Loftus, who has overhauled many an AW hub in his day. It will be held at the Community Cycling Center (1700 NE Alberta St) on Wednesday April 24 at 7 pm.

I've mentioned previously how Emee and I won't be able to make it to the Lake Pepin Three Speed Ride this year. While it's definitely a bummer, there are other smaller yet similar rides in the area we can do to give us the feel of Pepin without going the distance. Like the Dandy Daffodil... Continue Reading →
It was inevitable: After a too long February, the first tastes of spring have appeared. And not a moment too soon, as the colder than normal weather plus the off and on snow (that didn't do anything) was wearing me down. On Sunday March 10th, Steve M and I took a long bike ride on...
