Ciao! Really pleased to start working on some articles with the good folk over at Always Riding and publish my first piece for them over at their site. Check out a recounting of a day spent riding in what amounted to a World Tour breakaway in search of the world’s finest cappu at the bar that has seen generations of legends, champions and various miscreants of the pro peloton swing by for a mid-ride helping of froth from Snr Umberto Galligani.. http://www.alwaysriding.com/features/the-cappuccino-king/ And this beautiful short film about Snr Gallgani is really worth a watch, heartwarming stuff; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vGp_wn6fkxM
A post script to this piece; Sadly I have just received the news that Snr Umberto Galligani has recently passed away. My thoughts to his friends and family at this very sad time.
