H is for HAPPY New Year 540

I’m starting 2023 in the cycle studio with a class-favorite theme ride format. This 60-minute ride profile features H-named artists. Like the other “alpha” rides, this is an eclectic mix of many artists and variety of songs released over the years, and coincidentally…many Hills ahead.

I can always count on discovering some new gems with these alpha-theme rides. This time…HIM and Jodie Harsh! Some re-discoveries include: Talking Heads, Don Henley, and Heart. And my current go-to favorites: Hardwell, Halsey, and Becky Hill.

Keeping with the H theme of this post, here are some words that might resonate for you in 2023: Healthy, Hopeful, Helpful, Honest, Honor, Healing, Harmony, Humorous, Humble, Humane, High, Hero, Hospitable, Humility…and once again HAPPY!
