Ken Vedrinski

Executive chef, Trattoria Lucca, Charleston, SC

Inspired by a bike ride with a former Tour de France teammate of Lance Armstrong's, Ken Vedrinski started cycling seriously last year, training five days a week—up to 83 miles each time. As an homage to his Italian roots, he rides on an Italian-made Pinarello Dogma racing bike.
