Fixed Gear Mixed Terrain Metric
There are long stretches with no shade, and I was a little intimidated by the forecast. It was quite a workout, but it worked out just fine. Great ride.
I wanted to try a route that added some new roads. After my flat tire a couple of weeks ago, I seem to have mounted my rear tire off-center (yes, Hetre on Velocity rim) and I was too lazy to fix it last night. So I rolled the Quickbeam today.
Turns out the the new roads are excellent. But there was enough climbing on this hot summer day to motivate me to get that tire/rim thing resolved...soon.
I like these old one lane steel truss bridges. I think I'll come back by this one again. Maybe next time with more gears.
