The Importance of Taking Your Shot: Guest post by Nicole Klisch, Instructor – CycleBar Grand Rapids

Country girl at heart! I will always throw a country song into my classes when possible 🤠 I have loved being active since I can remember. I grew up playing sports and attended a small school where playing four varsity sports wasn’t unheard of; they became an integral part of my life. I loved the … Continue reading The Importance of Taking Your Shot: Guest post by Nicole Klisch, Instructor – CycleBar Grand Rapids

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

Ride Wit Me 523

I've been working on this mix for a few weeks now and as of today, it's RIDE READY.

Notable tracks include: BLACK SUMMER, for … Continue reading Ride Wit Me 523
