Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour (part 1)

I rode the Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour again this year. That's four years in a row. I won a mud flap in a drawing.

I have lots of photos. I'll take some time tonight to look at them a post the interesting ones (interesting to me, that is).

Lots of riders wear costumes that are supposed to represent what English people wore in the '30s. That's not me. I don't feel comfortable in costumes and yet I feel a little left out. I'll think about that for next year.




I didn't get into the Chequamegon Fat Tire 40 this year. I'll make the best of it and find another event. I'll take the disappointment like an adult without resorting to something extreme like signing up for a running marathon. One guy I know rode it 11 years straight, then was rejected for 4 years in a row, then got in this year. They use a lottery-style drawing and it can be cruel.

Sounds like me and the TC 10-Mile. Grrrr - got in for years in a row, then skunked the last 4.

I'm sure you'll find some other fun to get up to!

By the way, I mean no disrespect to the people who wear period clothing. I think their outfits are one of the main reasons the ride appeals to me so much. Just look at the vicar. He's become one of the pillars on which the ride is based.
