Lately I've been listening to Pantera, Audioslave, Mudvayne and, of course, Tool. I haven't heard of Widespread Panic, gonna check 'em out.

I usually preveiw a Spinning ride I'm going to do whether it's a new one or one I've used before. I usually tend to go with better known artists for my classes but I like to throw in some Techno punk too. My tastes run from Beatles to Sounndgarden to Crystal Method.It really depends on the mood of the ride or workout I'm going for.Lately I'm using alot of Roots rock like The Blasters and Jason and the Scorchers.

to that Cyclerobyx video from three+ winters ago.

Every time I see Karen Smyers compete in a televised triathlon, the first thing I think of is that she's in that video!

I record cd's with lots of fast songs.dzrider

Mostly I look for tunes with a beat slightly faster than my natural cadence and try to spin to the rhythm. Most cd's have a song or two for simulated climbing on the 52x12 and a song or two for spinning at 115-120 rpms.

The new Kid Rock, by the time I get to the slow song with Cheryl Crow it is time to cool down on the rollers.

... something about that freak, even after 4 years the first song in an interval set still HAS to be Bawitdaba (or however you spell it).

Either Coach Troy on Spinerval tapes or Phil and Paul on TDF tapes from 1997 to 2002.

I don't listen to music much while on the trainer but if I do it really needs to be up beat and fast.

Any Dream Theater, Tool, or sometimes the evening news on the TV (now that the Eagles are out of the playoffs, the Philly media is back to reporting things other than football, thankfully).

Lately, some live trance (Paul Van Dyk, etc.) I downloaded from In the past, I'd listen to Tool, Crystal Method....anything loud-n-fast to keep the legs moving subconsciously.

Kid Rock, Jay Z, Metallica, White Zombie / Rob Zombie, Rage Against the Machine, Beasties (Paul's Botique, Check Your Head era stuff), Ozzy, Uncle Cracker, Pappa Roach, Linkin Park, Eminem, Ramstein, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre ... I'm sure there's a pattern developing here.

nuthin like copacabana to help you light up the rollers.


tool, or anything tool-ish. actually, i ripped my entire cd collection to my PC so i've got like 4000 tracks that i put on shuffle. if a slower tune comes on, i just 'recover' for a while...
music is shitShihtzu on EPO

get your act together and start playing video games or get a gamebike. Or watch some old race tapes. Music is weak.
You'll last a lot longer that way.

I need some kind of visual stimulation as well. So I switch back & forth between MTV & VH1. It makes a big difference to me especially when I get down to the last 5-10 minutes.
It sucks when it comes down to Cher or Rod Stewart and no other choices! Linken Park, Three Doors Down, Incubus, Creed, Puddle of Mud are all good choices for me - and I ain't no kid anymore. This is the same stuff my 30 yr old daughter listens to.
How come Troy and his Spinerval crew never look older?WhoisJohnGalt

geez...I get older and come I have all their occupations memorized? How did the Trek rep get in the front row? I want Troy to come to my basement, I'll dog his arse!

I like to listen to my mix of BLS tunes, which tend to be long (5-12 mins), and metal/hard rock songs.

Whatever I listen to while riding my rollers, it has to be loud.
