Paint the Town…🍀: 2018 St. Pat’s Day Ride 411

Inspiration: A good mix of terrain and tunes for your Saint Paddy’s Day Theme Ride! Current and classic tracks from these pop artists with Irish roots: U2, Snow Patrol, Ed Sheeran and The Script. To satisfy your craving for classic Irish drinking tunes (or the sound of bag pipes), there are a bunch more from The Proclaimers, The Tossers, The Mahones, Flatfoot 56, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly (a newer release!).
Many quick tracks with a few hills and jumps in between.

For this post, I also included links to YouTube videos for each of the tracks…along with the standard Spotify playlist link. BTW, if you aren’t following me on Spotify yet…please consider it and share my account with others who might be interested!

Check out the SPin the News feature at the end of this post…it’s some local west Michigan news about an indoor cycling event at a local mall, all for raising awareness of cardiovascular health. Sounds like a worthy cause!

Enjoy your St. Pat’s Day weekend…are you schedule for a class, or do you avoid “holiday” classes?
