3-Speed Tour 2010 News from Jon

Just received from Jon the director of the Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour
regarding the 2010 Event as well as odd thistles and levers.

Dear Tyres and Tubes,

As the dust settles and the Old Rotter is returned to the shed, one
cannot deny the magnitude of the experience. The combination of
English iron and pastry must be considered volatile but when mixed
carefully with a dash of scenery and companionship, a most pleasant
result can be expected. Reports of the adventure rang far and wide
with coverage in local newspapers and, indeed, the locals may have
thought us daft; who are these well-dressed oddities with the rubber
necks, slow bicycles and well-fed smiles?

Other punctures and flats:

• Registration for the 2010 Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour is open
immediately for Veterans only. To ensure your spot, $25 payment must
be included. General registration for everyone else begins July 1st. A
Veteran by definition is a Nutter who has completed at least 1 Lake
Pepin 3-Speed Tour and knows they should not cover their potato bin
with an expensive Carradice rain cape. The idea here is to give the
establish Veteran a bit of a head start. Quite ironic, really, on a
cycle event whereby coming in last is the goal.

• If you are a Veteran who has lost your job in these trying times,
please let me know so you can take advantage of the Nutters in Need
programme; you’ll ride for free.

• Java Jan informed me that she will have a trifle contest at the
Eagles Nest next year; we will be requested to taste 2 examples and
vote for our favourite. The winner will be revealed with full regalia
and great sounding of trumpets.

• Java Jim and Java Jan will also have a Vegan option for the Eagle’s
Nest dinner; please let me know your requirements upon registration.

• Tune up your old stove and polish your favorite kettle since Ian
Lindridge has introduced a new sport for the Lake City Brew-Up next
year: Competitive tea brewing. First cup of tea wins. We are not sure
of the prize but there will be plenty of good-natured sport. Watch for
