Here at ICA we love Halloween and give you plenty of Halloween profiles. If you’ve been a member for a few years you might be looking for something new. Bill Pierce’s Halloween profile takes you to Transylvania to stop a vampire marriage because as we all know, first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the vampires with a baby carriage! Before long, the entire world will be overtaken by lovestruck vampires and their children. Since vampires live forever, this vampire marriage must be stopped. You’ll encounter some spooky things along the way. The real question is: Are you willing to come, or are you too scared?
This is an all-terrain interval ride that includes climbing in Zone 3 and 4, harder pushes up hills or on flats in Zone 4, and a few above-threshold anaerobic surges sprinkled in. Recoveries should be Zone 1 or Zone 2. Occasionally there is insufficient time for full recovery, so the riders may begin the next interval not completely recovered or wait to join in when they are ready. Heart rates are raised throughout the ride, sometimes through exertion and other times from fright.
The music all relates to some aspect of Halloween: candy, a cemetery, hell, the devil, Transylvania, and vampires. Bill chose a wide variety of genres. Most of the selections are quirky, humorous, and definitely not your Halloween standards, which is reflective of Bill’s style. After all, who wants to hear “Thriller” or “Monster Mash” for the millionth time?
