(HOLIDAY) MIXED CLIMB: Auld Lang Syne [Rosario Traditional Mixshow,] by Mariah Carey

“Indoor Cycling Tidbits” is a monthly resource for indoor cycling instructors.  For more info on what it’s all about, click here


This is a great way to bring home a holiday-themed ride!  Because it’s the end of the ride, I cue the riders to add resistance to burnout at the 5:33 mark.  If they add resistance while maintaining a cadence of 65 they will get near aerobic threshold and will be happy they’ve arrived at the cool-down. 

If you’re not using the song at the end of the ride, you can just finish out the ride as a seated climb with normal resistance. 

The song will be most effective if you keep your cues to a minimum, and strategically place them so the riders can enjoy the lyrics to the song (especially the “countdown.”)
