Welcome to the Indoor Cycling Association
I created this profile In Honor of Mountains to celebrate International Mountain Day on December 11, but, of course, good climbing profiles with great music can be used any time of the year. Almost all of the songs are based on the theme of mountains and being “on top of the world.” 2023: A NEW ALL-CLIMBING VERSION OF THIS PROFILE HAS BEEN ADDED!
Did you know that December 11 is International Mountain Day? What a joy to know that something we love to simulate in our cycling classes has been given its own day to be honored! It’s a great way to create a theme and promote a special day of climbing to honor mountains. We give you a playlist on the theme of mountains, summit, and top of the world with 160 songs to help you create your own mountain-themed ride. We also have two special profiles on this theme, including a new one called “The Alpine Ascent: Celebrating International Mountain Day.”
As indoor cycling instructors, we understand the profound impact that music can have on our classes. It’s the driving force behind every pedal stroke, helping our riders find motivation, rhythm, and a sense of purpose on their journey. World Techno Day (December 9) is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the genre that has become synonymous with high-energy workouts and futuristic beats—electronic music.
Warning: Before you see what this week’s suggestion is, I suggest you check your temperature…because you’re about to run a fever. A pop king gives us a great flat road that is both short and sweet, and perfect for so many moments during your cycling class!
The end result of assembling this profile and playlist exceeded even my own expectations. I hope you and your riders enjoy this exhilarating and challenging profile as much as mine did and that your participants cheer on your saxophone-infused musical journey.
