The Chainlink

I'm contemplating riding the Apple Cider Century, but only have my beat to hell three speed. Is it a mad idea to ride a century on a 3-speed? If you recommend against it, what do you think would be a good selection?

Soup with a fork... this makes me laugh every time I think of it.

You could do it. You could also eat soup with a fork. Try either one though, and you will quickly get the impression that the must be a better way.

There's some decent hills on this ride..especially in the second half when you are tired.  I would say you should be in pretty good shape to do this but I've seen guys do it on heavy mountain bikes so not sure why not on a 3 speed.  And remember there are rest stops every 20-25 miles.
