After reminiscing with a 2015 post earlier this week, I decided to give #252 a REFRESH, and add another 15 minutes for a Full Hour Burner! If you're ready to DO IT TO IT...this is IT! From a 2020 Lauv track to an 80's track from Yes, and lots in between...this really is IT! All … Continue reading Do It To It 528

shit i like 525

I LIKE sprints, hills, jumps, attacks, and rolling hills…👍🏼 And I really like all the great NEW music on this next ride. I was going to call out a few notable tracks, but too hard to single out a few, so just listen to the whole thing (it's just about 45 minutes). I hope you … Continue reading shit i like 525

Great Wide Open: SPINdurance 2019.6 470

Thanks to the Covid pandemic, haven’t done one of these extended ENDURANCE RIDES since March 2019! Anyone else missing these intensely fun 90-minute training rides…or have you been doing them at home or in the studio?

...it's all about Studio Cycling!

Inspiration:  Tonight was the last FTP 90 of the season…this was a good final ride into Spring, Summer and Fall rides outside.  Many tracks are based on suggested artists and genres from the FTP 90 Tuesday night regulars!  It’s been a great ride since late January when we started offering these endurance classes…until the fall it’ll have to be the 45- and 60-minute rides INSIDE.

Genre:  Alternative, EDM, Pop, Rock

Duration:  96 minutes

Playlist and Summary Ride Profile: 

Warm up – Great Wide Open / Thirty Seconds To Mars

Alt. Seated / Standing Flat – MIA / Bad Bunny, Drake

Continued Climb, transitions to quick flat – Only You / UNKLE, Wil Malone, Miink

Seated climb…steady pace and gear – I’m Just Being Honest / Weezer

Standing Flat & Seated Sprints (3X @ 30-40s) – Fire Alarm / Castlecomer

Seated Climb with increasing resistance – Better Days / Southside…

Ride Wit Me 523

I've been working on this mix for a few weeks now and as of today, it's RIDE READY. A pretty typical mix for a go-to, well-balanced ride: sprint intervals, jumps, hills, attacks, etc. Music is mostly current with a bit of EDM, alt rock, hard rock, R&B, and more. Notable tracks include: BLACK SUMMER, for … Continue reading Ride Wit Me 523

Pumped Up: The PEACEMAKER Ride 522

Not your everyday THEME RIDE, but I like it for something different from my typical ride mix. And if you’re a classic rock ‘n roller, you will too! If you haven’t seen HBO Max’s DC series staring John Cena as Chris Smith (aka Peacemaker), it MIGHT be worth checking out. 🤣 The series soundtrack is … Continue reading Pumped Up: The PEACEMAKER Ride 522

V Day 521

February is the shortest month of the year and yet is packed with month-long themes: Black History, Heart Health, Cancer Prevention, and all-things love, romance, chocolates and flowers. It's also the month when gyms, fitness clubs and cycle studios return to "normal"...after 30+ days into the new year, resolutioners giving up on wide-eyed plans for … Continue reading V Day 521
