Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Brilliant...Fart Knocker...tempo is actually perfect for spinning, 60 bpm is easy to double up to 120 rpm. Hilarious.

I listen to Counting Crows before I take off. Weird, I know, but I think it may help with my pacing or something. If I have a hard song on repeat, my brain automatically pushes it out of the consciousness for self-preservation when my body feels the reprocutions.

Generic Linkin Park (don't judge me) 30 minutes before while I'm stretching etc. and then hit it hard with "Long December" right before I walk out the door.

It's a nice contrast to the energy drink coursing through my veins. Eh, whatever works.

Comparing that music to Al is insulting. At least Al was funny, sounded good, had great tunes and had a nice hidden ironic message that one could either relate to or laugh with/at.

DHT - Listen to your heart
There's a lot of electronic dance music that is good cycling music.

slvoid's list is pretty good also except for maybe the last line

I listen to Zapp before I race. All the songs are about the same things (dancing, dance floors, watching people dance) and at the same tempo, which helps with cadence. After seeing slvoid's Judas Priest selection, I might have to change all that.
