MIXED CLIMB: Feels Like a Prayer, by Meck (feat. Dino)

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


I don’t know why but this one lands at the top of the list of most requested/commented on songs when I use it in my groups.  (I don’t ask for requests mind you…but people give anyway!)  I think it’s a feel-good-kinda climb, even though if you look at the profile on paper it’s a heavy-and-uncomfortable-kinda climb! 

While your riders will have the opportunity to make this song one of the most intense of the entire ride (if you truly load the gear and push the cadence it will be) there will be some people who choose to get out of the saddle and just sing along! 

And therein lies the beauty of group cycling….everyone can work as hard as they came to work and have as much fun as they came to have!
