As we approach the end of 2023, we’re unwrapping the year and revisiting the songs and artists that left a lasting impact on our cycling classes. Fern has crafted a profile that integrates songs that reflect some of the highlights from our music series this past year, including Mainstream Music Mondays, Friday Favorites, Trending Tracks, and Theme Ride Thursdays, along with some special mentions.
One of my favorite yearly traditions over the holidays is to teach a Winter Solstice ride using songs from our bucket playlist on the theme of lights. Here is my most recent version of Shari Miranda’s Winter Solstice theme profile…plus Shari’s updated version of her profile as well! We both use some of the same songs, but we do different things to the songs; this way, you can choose which choreography you prefer! Be sure to download both versions.
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.”
