What cadence is the beat of this song?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

What cadence is the beat of this song?

Here is the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tr0O8fAnVq8

Does anyone have another 80-90 cadence songs they can suggest?

my analog metronome was just on the fast side at 100bpm, so it was probably 98.

and the song sucks.

I tested it in the studio and it averaged about geighty-eight beats per minute.

(Blech, now I have to hose off my test equipment.)

About 75-78 rpm.. a little slow, so if you're pedaling at this cadence, pick it up a bit.
