This is My Fight Song Cycling Mix

14 Jun

images-2Hi There! I hope you’re all having a great weekend! I’m so excited that summer is finally almost here! I know that some of my other school teacher/cycling instructor readers are already done with their school year, but I still have a week and a half left. Here’s hoping it goes by quickly! In my last post, I voted for American Author’s ‘Go Big Or Go Home’ as the song of the summer. It’s still in first place for me, but there’s another song creeping up right behind it: ‘Fight Song’ by Rachel Platten. I’ve used it a few times recently in my classes, and I like it better every time. It’s a great anthem and the lyrics really ask you to push hard. In this playlist it’s used as a hill, but I’ve also used it as a flat road and loved it just as well. Here’s this week’s playlist followed by my teaching notes. I hope you find something you can use! Let My Love Open the Door by Luninate (3:18) Seated warm up

    Hey Chris! Thanks for the new ride. My fave songs of the summer so far are Cheerleader (Felix Jaehn Remix) for a cool down and Are You With Me by Lost Frequencies for a seated flat. There are also longer remixes of Are You With Me that work well for climbing.
