“Indoor Cycling Tidbits” is a monthly resource for indoor cycling instructors. For more info on what it’s all about, click here.
I originally went looking for, and programmed this song purely out of nostalgia. And I tended to only use it when I had groups of riders who were of a *certain age* who would appreciate the wonderfulness of it. But really, millennials dig it too, so if you wanted to you could play it with reckless abandon and not feel guilty.
While I have not done so yet, I believe this song could work out well in theme classes:
- road trip/travelling across USA
- football weekends
- obscure 90’s songs
- please humor the instructor with his/her childhood memories 😎 (surely this class would be packed!)
I admit that I wanted this song to work because I wanted to use it, not because it jumped out at me as being an excellent cycling song. But, it actually turned out to be an effective arrangement for a heavy climb. After all, the bpm is 130 (65 rpm – perfect) and the hip-hop/ragae-ish-ness of it all is gritty enough to bring out the emotion needed to get the task done.
