More Rock-and-Roll Suggestions for Rocktober (Because I Love Rock!)

It is an indisputable fact that ROCK AND ROLL IS PERFECT FOR CYCLING CLASSES in so many ways. Yes, that’s all caps—I’m yelling it from the rooftops! Here are a few of my favorite classic and modern rock songs and what I do to them.

Step Outside Your Musical Box: Four Rock and Roll Playlists (Good for ROCKtober!)

If you are a rock ‘n’ roll lover, these four (yes, four!) rock playlists are going to be right up your alley. And if you’re not, I think we can turn you into a fan! You’ll find a large selection of classic rock, a collection of modern rock tracks, and a playlist of all female rockers. The fourth playlist is songs about rock and roll or with “rock and roll” or “rock star” in the title for a fun twist on a rock-themed ride. There are well over 1,000 tracks that are great for Rocktober—but rock ‘n’ roll is forever so you can use these all year long!

Theme Ride Thursday: It’s Rocktober…Time to Cue Up the Three-Peat Rock ‘n’ Roll Profile!

I have provided two versions for coaching this high-intensity interval profile. One is with power (watts) and the other is with perceived exertion, for when you don’t have power meters. It’s perfect for those new to teaching with watts. It’s a very challenging profile and not for the faint-hearted. For that reason, I also include a fair amount of cueing suggestions on how to give permission for riders to back off or sit one (or two or three) of the intervals out.
