Inspiration: It’s been several weeks since cycle instructor and all-around athlete Matt Garbarino prepared his Guest Post for this blog. Matt is about halfway into his RUN ACROSS MICHIGAN, to pay tribute to and raise awareness of fallen law officers and their surviving family and friends. Matt has truly been on a MISSION for months preparing for this week. Check the SPin the News link below for a recent news story about his plan for the week…which will end in West Olive, Ottawa County, Western Michigan this Thursday afternoon.
Back to the Cycle Studio…today’s post is for a full hour ride that’s has a good balance of strength (hills) and speed (sprints) work. A couple Jump tracks (flat & on a hill), a free track, and some optional modifications round out this ride. The shorter 45m version is also on Spotify…link below.
Some new and repeated favorites on this ride include: the opening warm up track, a couple great climbs with Oh The Larceny, a couple instrumental tracks (Seek Bromance, Chimes Broken…from The Blacklist, Heart Shaped Box…from Westworld), current Drake and Panic!, and a fine finishing track by Andy Grammer.
Best wishes Matt!!!
