I have a library of over 5500 songs, so i listen to ALOT of music, i use Monster Cable Turbine Ear Buds, or Monster Cable, Dr Dre Studio Beats. I listen to fast, intense or indrenaline building music to get me pumped.
Heres one of my latest finds
Anything by that band blows my mind! Not one song is the same and they are SO good!!!
The new Red Hot Chili Peppers album is mind numbingly good!
I only ride 36ers. Mostly on rails-to-trails paths but sometimes on the road. I don’t wear earphones/headphones so that I can hear cars approaching. Instead, I carry a set of iHome speakers in my CamelBak. It’s not Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound quality but they do provide a little music as well as the announcements (speed, time, distance) from my iPhone CycloMeter app. Granted, I am probably quite a bit older than most of you guys but my “workout” playlist always begins with Queen’s “Bcycle". The lyrics are "I want to ride my bcycle, I want to ride my bike. I want to ride my bcycle, I want to ride it where I like.” Then Pink Floyd has a song called “Bke". The lyrics are "I’ve got a bke, you can ride it if you like. It’s got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good. I’d give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.” Other than that it’s mostly 80’s hair bands like Van Halen or Aerosmith. I told you I was old.
