Where do you come from? Not, where were you born, or where did you grow up, but how were you birthed as a cyclist? This week Fatty tells how he got into cycling and asks Patrick and Hottie what got them into the sport. And despite a concussion on his first ride, Fatty is still at it 20 years later.
Hottie asks what we would do without cycling. That is, if you suddenly couldn’t ride anymore, what would you do with yourself? Brickmason? Charlatan? Or…. The answers and the destinations (Vermont?) are likely to surprise. And what about you? What would you do without cycling in your life?
Patrick spent the length of your average movie on Skype with Selene Yeager, aka the Fit Chick. They discussed diet, weight, weight loss, hard events and the calculus that makes an event feel rewarding. However, most of that interview will run in an upcoming Paceline Tandem episode. This week, we pull a small excerpt and then tackle the question: what is the hardest event you’ve ever completed? And of course, that brings up the question of just how you define hard.
