Cinco De Mayo Cycling Mix

3 May

It’s that time of year again….Cinco De Mayo!  The only time it might be ok to play more than one Pitbull song in the same playlist!  I love this playlist and the way all of the music sounds.  It’s so upbeat, catchy and fun that your riders will won’t even realize how hard they’re working.  Before I get to my personal playlist, I’ll share the collaborative playlist we came up with last year on Spotify. There’s a ton of great stuff on here so feel free to follow, add and share:

And here is my playlist with brief teaching notes:

Cha Cha by Chelo (3:14) Warming up in the saddle

Bon Bon by Pitbull (3:36) Continue to warm up and start to bring it out of the saddle
