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
