Okay, you've got the rollers, a couple huge fans, a TV/VCR combo, a stack of race tapes dating back to Greg Lemond, and the cordless headphones hooked up to the hi-fi deck. As much as you love Phil Ligget, he's just not as witty the 25th time through. So you turn the sound on the TV down and crank up what on the CD player?

When the boys were small and I had to ride the trainer more than I do now, I made tapes specifically for training. I counted and timed thirty back beats. For some reason unrelated to my cadence - 85 on a good day - I found that the songs I liked best came in between 14 and 17 seconds for 30 beats. I now have 10 tapes of music in this range of tempo. I try to rotate them but my hippie soul finds itself moving tapes that start with the Dead and the Stones to the top of the pile.

When you were on the trainer with the kids presumably in the room, were you afraid of them getting into the back wheel and loosing some apendages? I know this is thinking the worst but it always springs to mind when I think of kids and trainers.

PS I don't think I have any kids and hopefully wont for a while.

Anything electronic. Right now it is Fat Boy Slim, Underworld or Moby.
Dave Brubeck, Take 5tarwheel

It's an old jazz album but EZ to find in a good record store. A real classic, you'll recognize the tune. I brought this CD to spin cycle class to warm up with before class started. Everyone liked it so much that the class spun to Dave Brubeck rather than the tape the instructor brought.
strongly second that! and, theloneous monk: this is jazz. nmJs Haiku Shop

While I agree with the other posters choices in music and have a rather extensive jazz collection myself, when I really want to crank it up on the trainer I have to go back to my youth. It pains me to admit it but only good old heavy metal will do. Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and the like have the fast beat and screaming guitars to keep me going. I tend to not have easy days when on the trainer. I figure if I am going to torture myself on one of the those things I might as well do it up big.

I like the jazz ideas especially. I'm gonna try it. I burned a cd that is part Carmina Burana, part The Cult, and part Beastie Boys, but even that doesn't seem to pump me up as much as it used to. Maybe I just need to move south and give the rollers to Goodwill. Thanks again.

anything loud, fast and aggressive to keep me motivated.

Misfits, Dead Kenedys, Minor Threat.
