Welcome to the next stage of our magic cycling tour - this time we emphasise diversity in the music and coaching participants to their personal best performance.
We should all be helping our members to their most fulfilling experience, while leaving them firmly in control of their feelings and the intensity of their workout.
The class is about encouraging great technique on the bike and providing riders with every opportunity to "go hard" or recover.
The class warms up with the funky Rasta sound of Hey Mama from The Black Eyed Peas - it's got great beats for connecting with the workout. Then we pick up the pace with Ride It from ex-Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell. Take your riders through the three-speed/cadence phases as we get into the serious work.
Young Hearts Run Free is a great singalong sound for the first hill climb, with some Euro-pop from Shapeshifters to follow as we hit the mixed terrain of flats and short climbs.
We've got the edgy rap sound of Freestyler to help riders into attack mode - everyone will want to lead the pack in this one.
Then it's time to focus on the inner ride with the "trancey" Don't Give Up from Chicane.
Rock collides with techno in Runaway for a final, "hard-out" mountain climb. Then take the chance to reflect and recover in a cruisy ride home with Seal and a well-earned stretch to the Bob Dylan classic, Knockin' On Heaven's Door.
Enjoy the ride!
