Inspiration:  When working up a new playlist I tend to search more for new (Spotify New Music Friday & Radar Release) or new-to-me tracks (Spotify Discover Weekly), but for this ride I scrolled through my archives of tracks that I’ve used over the past 6 years…I think you’ll like this SPINLIST.  I used it (the 47m version) for two classes earlier this week and it’s a burner!  The ride profile hits all of the 9 Spinning®  movements…quick intervals, intense climbs, jumps and some optional upper body presses too.   Each track is great, but take time to check out the only new track on this ride…Common, ZAYN…a beautiful cool down song by a current favorite artist!
