Something for everyone

Hi everyone – I have a new playlist for you!  I mentioned this in my last post, but I’m only teaching once a month– which is actually motivation for me to create a new playlist each time I teach.  I am thinking about expanding the site a bit and posting more frequently- is there anything else that would be helpful or would you just like to see playslists?

This one is pretty random in terms of content, but a good mix of climbing/flat road/ sprints.  Enjoy!  Here is the spotify link: cycle tunes 12.13.14

  • earth, wind & fire – september (3:35) : warm up/stretch
  • zz top – sharp dressed man (4:13) : rolling hills to get everyone warmed up
  • lynyrd skynyrd – gimme three steps (4:30) : you can do pretty much anything here – I am going with some quick surges at approx. 60-70% of max resistance, but you could also throw in a straight climb, lifts in and out of the saddle- whatever you’re feeling!
  • citizen cope – bullet and a target (3:49) : i have to admit, i am throwing this one in for myself- i love this song.  i take a steady, steep climb on this tune.
  • vance joy – riptide (3:24) : this is a great one for downhill run.
  • benny benassi – control (3:29) : again, this is another personal favorite.  sprints on this one.
  • scissor sisters – only the horses (3:43) : quick pace, lifts in and out of the saddle.
  • crazy town – butterfly (3:37) : same as earlier in the ride, surges at approx 60-70% max resistance.
  • angels and airwaves – the adventure (5:13) : this is the longest push of the day.  this song starts off slow, but we’re on to the second, steady climb of the day.
  • k’naan – wavin’ flag (3:33) : steady, quick pace.  flat road.
  • katy perry – this is how we do (3:24) : final push of the day, lifts in and out of the saddle.
  • alabama shakes – hold on (3:46) : cool down/stretch
