Iron your party pants and get up to get down! Riding a trainer, most often alone in a secluded place, is not the glamorous side of bicycle riding. Pedaling along, going nowhere, staring down at a constantly deepening pool of your own sweat makes time slow to a grinding, halting, sputtering rhythm that makes you want to gauge things out of your head (hint: it's your eyes that go first).
So, we've put together 4 playlists to jam out to while your spinning on the trainer, riding fat in the woods, or even just walking the down the street on your way to grab a gallon of milk.
Cody's list is scientifically proven to raised your Functional Threshold Power by 4%. Big cuts from Kanye West, The Ramones, Calvin Harris combine to create a RaveRock dance party in your head. Turn it on, crank it up, and go climb a mountain from the safety and warmth of your basement.
This playlist is very loosely designed around 3x20 Steady State Intervals, but works for anything because you are your own boss and you do what you need to. It's also great for driving somewhere you don't want to go, breaking up with your significant other, or raving by yourself in a roadside park on your way back from a bike race. You've been there. You know the feeling.
