Welcome to the Indoor Cycling Association
This profile takes inspiration from the adrenaline-pumping soundtrack of the iconic film, Top Gun, setting the stage for a series of intense intervals that mirror the rounds of dogfighting where pilots compete for the prestigious “Top Gun” title. Riders will embark on five challenging “rounds” of test flights, each designed to push them to their limits and enhance their skills.
If you haven’t used this track, do not pass GO! Run and find it now! Yes, it’s that good. I’ve been using it since my early days of teaching and there’s never been a time when my riders haven’t commented on how it pushed them. Just writing about what I do to this song raised my heart rate!
As you embark on this carpe diem ride, envision yourself as a leap-year adventurer, boldly venturing into uncharted territories of intensity and determination. Each set of this challenging interval profile is crafted to embody the spirit of seizing the moment, making every pedal stroke count toward your goals. The Leap Year bucket playlist has 150 tracks if you want to craft your own profile and playlist.
While the peppy energy of this track from a Grammy-nominated band works well for a moderate-to-hard flat, either as an interval or a throughway to a harder effort, it is versatile enough and short enough to be used as a recovery.
