I rode from Chula Vista to Imperial beach and back today. Checked out the ocean, an E-bike store, a bar (I'm not perfect) :) . Got some miles in, don't feel too bad either. Nice. Wasn't bad at all.

Some great replies here. This coming weekend I'll take one of the bikes out for a spin. I'm thinking an easy ride around Mission Bay (all flat) just to start. On the Schwinn. :)

That World Sport would be any easy one to add fenders, a rack , and maybe a 7 speed freewheel. Friction shifters are pretty flexible.
