On the club ride today, a riding buddy said, "From now on, I'm calling you the 'Cadence Italian.' He meant that while the pace may go up or down, my speed doesn't seem to vary much, that sometimes I'm off the back, sometimes I'm near the front, but I'm always hanging around somewhere, seemingly just spinning along. Oh, yeah, and I've got an Italian last name.
I love the moniker and the concept, but what he doesn't know and what I'm not gonna tell him, is that half the the time, I'm not spinning. I'm hammering like hell just to stay in contact.
