After four months or more since my last post...time for another ride mix to share with all you indoor cycling enthusiasts! I hope you and your riders are well and settling into a NEW NORMAL routine.

Adrenaline 508

A year ago TODAY, here in West Michigan, the Coronavirus pandemic got real...and what was projected to change for just a few weeks, rocked our world for months. This CORONA-Versary marks my last maskless studio cycling class and the last time in the office of my “day job”! When will maskless fitness classes in public … Continue reading Adrenaline 508

Welcome Back + Carry On 507

If my last post way back in April started off with WTF, I have no idea how to start this post, more than 7 months later!  Here's a SHOUT OUT to John Bratton, owner of California Cycle Path, for an Instagram PM and kick in the ass to get back on the blog...Thanks John! So … Continue reading Welcome Back + Carry On 507

(for the ride) Inside Friend 506 and a ‘420’ Bonus

Inspiration: WTF!  Life on Earth has changed so much since I signed off for an intentional pause, just before the start of Lent.  The irony of lent this year, turns out I gave up more than blog posts this lent...worse yet, tens of thousands of people are loosing their battle with Covid-19, and many survivors … Continue reading (for the ride) Inside Friend 506 and a ‘420’ Bonus

Further Up: Mr. 305 in the 616 (Pitbull Mix) 502

Inspiration:  The 305 area (South Florida) sounds pretty good now...compared with the 616 area (West Michigan)...and with the newest Pitbull release out, this theme ride sounded like a good idea.  This is also a nod to fellow Miami area cycle instructor Adam Ginsberg (GinsSpins), winding down and enjoying the #onelastdance at RedBike Cycle Studio. Here's … Continue reading Further Up: Mr. 305 in the 616 (Pitbull Mix) 502
