Hey There! I know, I haven’t been great at posting to the blog lately. Things have been pretty busy around here with teaching spin class and training rides lately.
Here’s what I came up with for my St. Patirick’s Day Ride this year. It is pretty similiar to last year’s ride if you look back on my old blog, with just a few minor changes. What can I say? I really loved last year’s ride, so I didn’t think I needed to change it up too much. I really love this music!!! I hope you enjoy it too!
WIld Night/Van Morrison-Warm up
Captain Kidd/Great Big Sea- I know, there’s really nothing Irish about this band, but I love them and this song just has an Irish feel to it. Continue to warm up and bring it out of the saddle for a bit.
Magnificent/U2-What would a St. Patrick’s Day playlist be without Bono? Standing climb
I’m Shipping Up To Boston/Dropkick Murphys-Seated accelerations
Drink The Night Away/Gaelic Storm-Standing climb
Raised On Black and Tans/Gaelic Storm-Seated climb
The Celtic Tiger/Ronan Hardiman-Alternate seated/standing climb on the tempo changes
We Love The Game/XTD-standing flat
Devil’s Dance Floor/Flogging Molly-Seated accelerations
Toss the Feathers/The Corrs-Standing climb
Kiss Me I’m Irish/Gaelic Storm-Heavy Standing climb. Sing along here if you’d like. Favorite line: ‘I only drink on the days of the week that end with a Y.’ In the saddle and pick up the pace after the 3 minute mark.
Old Black Rum (Live)/Great Big Sea-Standing flat. I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!
Amazing Grace/Dropkick Murphys-Finish up with some seated accelerations!
I Don’t Think I’ll Love Anymore/Young Dubliners-Cool Down
