I fear purgatory, at least, for some of my readers. What the hell. Certainly I shouldn’t be the one with plastic rummage sale devil horns zip tied to my helmet. Pure evil, but I kind of like it. The fear of death motivates us all and it sort of shows. It’s Facebook Friday on The Best Bike Blog Ever*. During the week we ask our Facebook likers and followers a question and post the comments on the blog. Like us here and join us next week. This week’s question came via FB message from fan Jerry. He asked:
You have your Ipod jammin' in the last mile of a Time Trial or Big MTB race. What song has to come on to motivate you to hammer even harder?
The Subways “Oh Yeah” (pictured above)
I go lactic every time I hear it.
At the "24 Hours of Moab"- playing over the loud speaker just as the sun was setting on the last mile or so. A speedy downhill straightaway into the hand-off tent...Not so much hammering harder, but just a free and exhilerated feeling!
Foo Fighters "Learn to Fly"
Dropkick Murphys “Flannigan’s Ball”
Nothing but the sound of my pulse reverberating through my eyeballs.
Ever notice you feel like a winner while listening to Rick Astley? I do.
@James- I think Cyndi Lauper & Rick Astley had a child and you are the result.
This song came on in the last mile of Ironman Florida and I could run that mile harder than anything else I had done that day.
The Clash “Hateful”
This tune kicks ass! I find it very inspirational!!
Nine Inch Nails "Hand That Feeds"
Just try turning under 100 RPMs. A must for the warm up routine or trainer rides.
I always look forward to them coming up on the playlist.
