I need to fix my 3 speed

I really need to get my old three speed running. This looks like fun.

That does look like fun. My Batavus is not English though, wonder if that's allowed?

(not that I can be in Minnesota for the ride)

I've done the Pepin Lake tour three times and it IS fun. A beautiful ride with wonderful people and a sense of humor (with a British accent). Do it, you'll love it too!

Attached a few photos I took on the last Pepin tour I rode.

Non-English 3-Speeds are allowed. The Quicker Vicker (aka Faster Pastor) rides a Schwinn. It is large (see photo) but it is not English. Plus, a friend of mine rides a Dutch 3-speed, so no worries.
