Inspiration: It’s that time of year…here’s your St. Patrick’s Day Theme Ride! The actual day is more than a week away, but celebrations kick off this weekend…Saturday in Chicago and Sunday in Detroit, so why not get an early start in the cycle studio too! The usual suspects on this playlist include: U2, The Cranberries, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphy’s…but check out the rest. The newest Ed Sheeran album has a few good ones that you’ll find here too. This is the first time I’ve done a SPD Theme ride…had to this year with some great Sheeran tracks just released.
What Irish classics will you be riding to this year?
Enjoy the Ride!

I love the songs for this ride…I’ve got many of the same for the ride I’m teaching next week…can’t have a St. Patty’s Day ride without a little Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphys. 🙂 In case you didn’t know (I didn’t, until I did a little research), Thin Lizzy is also from Ireland. So if you like “The Boys are Back in Town”, you could use that for future. 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
Thanks Melanie! YES…Thin Lizzy would be another good option…next year! Some awesome Sprinting tracks with Flogging Molly. Have a great weekend.
I love that green gif!! I could stare at it forever…great playlist!
Yes…a good find on that GIF. Thanks and have a great weekend!
