Three Speed October starts NOW (or really yesterday)

Society Of Three Speeds

Hello friends of three speeds! The annual Three Speed October Challenge started yesterday, Sunday October 26th. And I am here to remind you that it is not too late to register if you want in on the action! You can find all registration info here.

While reporting via the written mail-in journal is still required, I highly encourage folks to share their rides on the internet as well. If you post to Instagram, please tag with #3spdoct21 If you blog or post elsewhere on the internet, let me know when you post and I’ll try to share.

Below are Instagram posts from Sunday tagged with #3spdoct21
