Well, this is upsetting. Two tribute posts in two days, and both from the same era. We’ve lost another rock legend, this time Ric Ocasek. If you don’t know the name, you for sure know his music—The Cars, one of the most essential new wave rock bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Why Do They Come to Class if They Don’t Want to Work?

Do instructors need to chill? Izabela asks that question after recognizing that some of her riders have very different reasons for coming to her class, ones that she personally may never have considered. At first, acknowledging this went against her instincts as an instructor, but it made her wonder if she had it all wrong. This realization made her much more empathetic to her riders.

Friday Favorites: Hop on the Roller Ride

Get ready for two rolling hills that peak over multiple phases. Riders start with a seated climb, add resistance, climb out of the saddle, sit, and climb once more to reach the summit. Once over the top, they accelerate down the other side, where they get a brief recovery on a flat road before starting it all over again. What an exhilarating ride!
