Watch my virtual ride “Four Mountains: Exploring Musical Genres” before it goes away on December 1st!
I’ve been meaning to start doing virtual rides, so this Sunday afternoon I did a practice ride on Zoom. I was originally going to do it with just one friend as my audience but at the last minute I decided to invite anyone who wanted to join and sent out an email to my email list. You may have seen that email in your inbox!
I know it was very last minute…
In fact, I didn’t think I’d get anyone, but thankfully a few did join me. But boy did I get a lot of people asking after-the-fact about watching it on replay!
So, I’m going to leave it up for 48 hours if you want to ride to it. It’s free for anyone to ride to.
BUT please keep in mind this was my first practice run. I’ve done many videos of my rides for ICA members, but a virtual ride is different than filming a video. The technology is different. Filming it live adds another dimension…including anxiety (especially about technology).
And yeah, I had a few sound hiccups. We discovered my lapel mic that works fine when I use my phone as the camera doesn’t work my my computer.
So unfortunately, I didn’t have a separate mic and had to talk louder.
But overall, it wasn’t bad, and it’s definitely a challenging ride and I hope you enjoy it. I would love your feedback.
Now I know what I need to do different. I’ve ordered a mixer and a mic, and I’ll probably use a different platform than Zoom….but at least I got the first one out of the way!
Watch the video below…but hurry, I won’t keep this up for long.
Stay tuned for more virtual rides in the very near future. If you are interested in learning more about riding with me, please respond back with a hearty COUNT ME IN!
I’ll be planning regular classes starting soon, and then in early January, keep your eyes open for a periodized winter training program that you can ride with me at home.
This ride is a series of 4 climbs from 8–10 minutes long. Each climb and its recovery uses a different genre of music—so you know you will get some good music variety.
Don’t forget to leave me feedback
