The 2020 Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour
Due to issues of restaurant/ bakery availability, group size, possible motel contagion and recommendation from the CDC, we had to cancel the 3ST.
The headwind we face is a mighty one and there is a way to conquer it with dignity and a smile on your face; proof, in excelsis, of the power of the bicycle.
I hereby summon all the Nutters of the Realm to build a 3-Speed Tour we shall not forget.

There is no better self quarantine than riding alone on a bicycle so we have a rather pleasant vicarious alternative: Get out your favourite Trusty Steed, march proudly out your back door and go for a ride. Pick Saturday, May 16th or Sunday the 17th (or both), choose a direction, and head out. Pack a lunch, strong sweet tea, cake, and your mouldy canvas rain cape and enjoy the day. Be sure your saddle is a bit hard and your tyres are a bit soft and don’t forget to take photos because this is a 3-Speed Tour after all. Stop at all the overlooks and historic markers you can find. Once you have returned, upload your photos somewhere that we can all view and write it up on the Gentleman Cyclist list. Once you are settled into the overstuffed chair for the evening, enjoy your favourite stout or if you entertained the inevitable flat tyre during your 3-Speed Tour, better go with the Belgian Ale. For a little icing on the cake, send your address and I will forward a plague-yellow 2020 bagtag in return.

The Following is but a sample of the photos from 3-Speed Touring enthusiasts from all over the globe. God save the Queen!
