Got a good solid ride in today aboard the Ward Hawthorne Flyer for 51. Clean air and great temps here in the Cali flats. Out to the coast, south to the end of the peninsula, across the harbor channel on the ferry then up Back Bay and San Diego Creek to my turnaround near Sand Canyon. The Hawthorne and "Hermes" the fellow on the badge, carried me well as usual.
My 1950’s Monark Klunker started getting out of hand with BMX upgrades.
Decided to dial it back to a basic early Marin County spec. Ha!
Only problem is today’s ride seemed to be all uphill! Thankfully it has 10/22 gearing.
