Training with my fixie at the Idroscalo. In the foreground, my red San Marco Concor; back there, the mountains that you rarely see from this very polluted and hazy city — the Grigne. Training was: 15 series of friggin’ fast spins (around 100 rpm), 15” each, followed by 45” of slower pedaling. Well the idea was this but since I had no speedometer, nothing to measure the number of pedaling strokes per minute, and just one fuckin gear, I did what I could. I hope it’s effective (my legs were certainly feeling it).
