Higher 248

Inspiration: I’ve had a few 45 minute classes over the past week and this was a favorite! HBO’s Game of Thrones is ready to launch another season, and I found a great version of the theme track for a warm up. The Alan Parson’s Project has some great classic tracks, and the Raven is part…

Hope You Got What You Came For 247

Inspiration: A recent Olly Murs release is the cool down track…and the name for this hour-long ride. We rode to this playlist at the 8:30AM Cycle Class today…an intense 60 minutes! Plenty other new tracks mixed in with some older classics, current favorites and some inspirational tracks from top contemporary Christian artists (I have a…

Gimme What I Don’t Know (Endurance Ride) 244

Inspiration: Found a great mix of old and new tracks for this 90 minute Endurance ride playlist.

EDM, Classic Rock, 80’s/90’s tracks and a few remixed tracks add some interval work along the way!…

Make You Better 243

Inspiration: A 60 minute class today calls for a fresh 60 minute playlist! Also this weekend…the first weekend of the 2015 installment of LaughFest, an annual event in the greater Grand Rapids area. This year is the fifth time comedians have taken over the city for 10 days of this “seriously funny” event. Last night…

What I did… (Endurance Ride) 242

Noteworthy tracks…A frequent rider suggested Roundabout (Yes), new artist Majik says IT’S ALRIGHT, and Passion Pit reminds us (some of us) about the great year…1985. Have…

All Hands On Deck 241

Inspiration: I put this playlist and ride profile together a couple weeks ago…mostly from tracks found on Spotify’s New Music Tuesday. Many good tracks that week!
