back to the basics

hi friends – one of my oldest, favorite rides.  hope you enjoy!  here is the spotify link : cycle tunes 7.15.13

  • dazz band – let it whip (4:29) : warm up / stretch
  • aerosmith – sweet emotion (3:15) : let’s get going – steady little uphill climb, surges to get us there quickly.
  • the rolling stones – paint it black (3:44) : surges on the pick ups in song – each about 15 sec long, approx 10-15 sec break in between.  this is a good one!
  • prince – kiss (3:46) : steady climb uphill
  • kelis – acapella (4:08) : remember the girl who sang “my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard”?   well, here she is bringing the heat, with sprints.  each approx 35-45 sec on the chorus.  have fun.
  • lady gaga – poker face (3:57) : climb uphill, surges on the chorus
  • kevin rudolf – let it rock (3:51) :  lifts, in and out of the saddle 
  • u2 – vertigo (3:14) : i would love a flat-road right now, but it’s not happening.  steady climb uphill
  • needtobreathe – let us love (3:42) : quick, out of saddle surges on chorus
  • peaches & herb – shake your groove thing (5:46) : i accidentally chose the long version here, i cut short in the middle of class.  flat road endurance, a couple of short surges in the saddle (some of out of saddle if our bottoms need a break!)
  • p!nk – trouble (3:11) : last one – sprints on chorus
  • rolling stones – gimme shelter (4:32) : slow / cool down
