Three Speed April 2021: Registration now OPEN!

Society Of Three Speeds

Hello friends! After a hiatus last year (we had a photo challenge instead) the real-deal Three Speed April Challenge is back! Where Three Speed October is about riding your three speed more often, this challenge is about doing things you didn’t think possible with a three speed.

The basic Three Speed April Challenge remains the same. It is open to all bicycles equipped with a three (and four, and five) speed internal gear hub (without derailleurs), and can happen anywhere in the world. It consists of five sub-challenges:

  1. Ride your three speed at least fifteen miles (25 km) in one ride.
  2. A climb of 5% or more grade, with a cumulative elevation gain of at least 100 feet (30 m).
  3. A bit of unpaved/dirt action, of at least a cumulative one half mile (1 km).
  4. Coffee outside via three speed.
  5. A bike overnight or bike camping trip by three speed.
