Anyone know if Hemingway ever wrote a short story about bicycle racing?

Hemingway is well know for his affection for horseracing and mountain climbing but I came across a passage in "A Moveable Feast" where he writes that he love bicycle racing and wants to write a proper short story about the sport

You belong to me and all Paris belongs to me and I belong to this notebook and this pencil.

I realize that's nonresponsive.

I'm not aware of any Hemingway stories, but here's a fun one from Mark Twain about his learning to ride a bike

I think a character in "A Farwell to Arms" was modeled after a real life italian cyclist. Not aware of a true look at cycling fiction though.
