Registration is open for all Veteran Nutters and first-time Nutters. By definition, a Veteran is a Nutter who has completed at least 1 Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour and knows they should not cover their potato bin nor crash their Rudge with an expensive Carradice rain cape. Almost someone will be glad to hear the STO's rain cape has been de-moulded and repaired.
Registration is fixed at $30; this includes your event reservation, bag tag, and Tourbook BUT NOT MEAL TICKETS. Entry fee must be included with registration; no more "...save me a spot" business. Reservations are capped at 130 Nutters of the Realm and are refundable up to 2 weeks before the event and may not be applied to next year.
Saturday dinner meal ticket is $20, Sunday breakfast meal ticket is $15. See the "Meals" section above for more information.
In summary, the Full Monty is $65 per Nutter. Puppies ride free.
Veteran Nutters who have lost their job may take advantage of our "Nutters in Need Programme" and may ride for free. Spouses are now included even if they have a job. Vice versa works as well.
Payment is acceptable via Paypal or cash, check, money order, .999 silver bullion or, as usual, rusty lumps of iron from your shed.
Paypal address: email@example.com
Deadline for refunds is 2 weeks before the event. If you prefer, your refund may be applied to the Nutters in Need programme.
Other details: Meet at Colville Park in Red Wing Minnesota on the east side of town, just off Highway 61 across from the correctional facility. For those arriving early, The Staghead is an excellent place for those Nutters who wish to gather Friday night for a pint; Noel says to get there about 4-4:30. We gather here Sunday afternoon after the tour as well and have the place reserved just for us.
Be ready to go at 7:00am Saturday morning. Red Wing is 1.5 hours south of St. Paul. General driving directions to Red Wing are available from Google Maps. We have made arrangements with the Red Wing Police to leave our cars in the Colville lot overnight.
See: http://www.redwing.org/ for the complete list of Red Wing info.
A note about fitness: We maintain a modest pace but riders must be able to easily complete 45 miles in a day. That seems innocuous enough but add headwinds, big hills, gravel and rain and your spouse may decide you've taken leave of your senses.
Your camping gear may be transported in the 3-speed lorry for the trip to Wabasha. Hence, we encourage you to tip a few quid for Bobbi's petrol and her lost weekend. Camping gear goes in the trailer and the trailer is then parked at the campground. All other gear goes in the lorry. The lorry is not available during the day; it does not necessarily follow us and should not be considered a SAG wagon.
Please note there are NO organised food stops, rest stations, or mechanic support.
