Johnny Hallyday, known as the French Elvis Presley, passed away last week at age 74. Hundreds of thousands of people poured in the streets of Paris today to honor this musical icon. I’ve often used Hallyday’s songs in my Tour de France and Bastille Day profiles. I hope you will find a place in your profiles for these great French tracks.
The world lost an incredible musician today. Here is a list of some of my favorite Tom Petty tracks to use in my cycling classes, and how I use them. I’ve also created a Spotify playlist of what I feel are some of his best songs for a wide variety of uses in your classes, from the warm up, to the cool-down, to fast flats, hard climbs, and much more.
