Inspiration: For the Cycle Instructor in me, this is a bittersweet time of year. Summer is MY season and I love all 100 days of Michigan Summertime. It’s also that time of year when class numbers fall off and fewer classes are on the schedule. Regardless of all that’s going on OUTSIDE and no matter how small the class…I WILL BE THERE…ready to ride INSIDE, burning calories and rocking to pace setting, motivational, amazing music. This weekend should be a great time to keep your RIDE INSIDE…cool, cloudy and rainy conditions through Sunday.
So whether the studio is filled to capacity, or just a handful of riders…ENJOY THE RIDE!
Be sure to check out these new (or repeated) favorites: Fix You (from The VOICE this week), I Wanna Know (Love Bea Miller!), I’ll Be There (Love Jess too!!), Mrs. Robinson (a great, upbeat updated cover…for SPRINTS), Fire (recently discovered Barns Courtney…good stuff), Pilgrim (WOW…love this one from Fink), Right Here, Right Now (made for the Cycle Studio…this is a new REMIX version), Hold on Tight (check out this video for this new release, below), Warrior (this was a member recommendation last weekend…I LIKE IT!), You Got Me Runnin’ (perfect for those last few sprints before cool down), and Let Me (so nice for cool down and stretch).
Genre: Alternative, Christian, Pop, Rock
