Aug. 14-18- 15 min. sets

Some great new songs to take us through this ride.  Four sets, each around 15 min. Flat roads.  Speed work.  Steady hills.  It’s a mixed bag of terrain and sound.

Aug. 7-11- Pyramids

90 hard, 60 harder, 30 hardest.  Over and over.  Throw in a few hills (and a little Lauren Hill) and we have ourselves a ride! And some great new music this week, too.

July 31-Aug. 4-  Dirty 30’s and Rolling Hills

We’ve had a lot of hills lately, and this ride is no exception.  Couple that with Dirty 30’s (it’s just so fun to say!)  and you have yourself another two-towel ride.  Equal parts speed and climbs, it’s a great ride.

July 24-28- 7,6,5,4,3,2,1

The premise of this ride is simple: 7 min. hill, 7 min. of sprints.  6 min. hill, 6 min. of sprints, etc.  Don’t mistake simple for easy.  And bring two towels.

July 17-21- Election Day

This is the ride we did on election day this year with new music.  A little bit of everything for everybody.  How democratic of me.

July 10-14- Modified Ladders

Don’t be fooled by the long recoveries at the beginning of these ladders.  By the end you’ll huffing and puffing, but you’ll love it anyway.

July 3-7- Freedom Ride

June 25-30- Dirty 30’s

I’m back and ready to ride.  Dirty 30’s are as fun as they sound.  Grab two towels and an extra water bottle.  It’s going to be a sweaty ride.

June 5-9- 80’s Rock

March 27-31-  Hourglass ride

Spring is supposed to come in like a lion and out like a lamb, but there’s nothing gentle or easy about this ride.  And that’s how it should be.

January 30- February 3- Dirty 30 Roundup

It’s as fun to ride Dirty 30’s as it is to say them.  Mixed with some steady hills and we have ourselves a good ride.

Note: One song, “Slide Away” by Hard Jeli is not on Soundcloud, but is on my list.  It’s a good 9 min. song to finish our Dirty 30’s to.

January 23-27- Hill, Sprint Switches

While the climbs get longer, the sprints get shorter (but more intense).  It’s a two-towel ride.

Note: One song, Me and Myself by Bendj, is not on Soundcloud, but is on my playlist.

January 16-20  6,5,4,3,2,1

Equal parts climbing and sprinting, this ride is for everyone no matter what terrain you love most.  Many of the songs on this playlist are remixes I wasn’t able to find on Soundcloud.  In those cases I linked original versions.

January 9-13 I See Dead People

Yes, it’s a little irreverent, but so were a lot of artists on this playlist.  Sadly, this wasn’t a difficult list to put together.  We’ve lost a lot of incredible artists and I could easily put together a Part II.

January 2-6  Double-Up Sprints

Lots of fast feet for this ride.  I tried to find the remixed versions of all the songs I use in class, but I couldn’t find most of them.  So, I’ve included the regular version in this playlist even though I used the remixed versions in class.

Dec. 19-24 Christmas Ride

So, this isn’t the playlist for my regularly scheduled cycle classes this week.  It’s the playlist for my Christmas Eve spectacular.  And it is spectacular.  Because nothing says Christmas like Stone Temple Pilots with a side of Justin Bieber.

Dec. 5-9 Dirty 30’s

Many of the songs on this list weren’t available on Soundcloud, so I chose close alternatives, but you get the idea.

Nov. 28- Dec. 2  Thanksgiving Leftovers

Nov. 21-25 Pre-Thanksgiving Ride

This is my absolute favorite week of the year.  Maybe it’s the thought of all the gravy and pie I’m going to consume.  I don’t know.  But my spirits are up and this playlist is a reflection of that.

Nov. 14-18  Pyramids II

Nov. 7-11  Election Day Ride

What better way to work out election day stress than with a good, sweaty ride.  Seriously, this election cycle has been a slow, tedious, arduous grind.  Good news.  The end is in sight!  Let’s celebrate with some speed work, hills and fast flats.   Note- a few songs are actually remixes, but couldn’t be found on Soundcloud.  In those cases, the I selected the original song so at least you know what song to expect, even if the beat is a little different on ride day.
