Bike Beat

Riding trainer can be VERY boring. I have not found any CD's that get me going. What do you like?

favorite bike sound is from my youth. the sound of bike tires running over a sandy rural road. favorite bike related smell, pine needles in the sun

My trainer is an elliptical at the gym, watch movies on my tablet, listen to '70s soul or punk rock, depending on mood and need to keep it moving and drown out the Brittany Spears song on the PA.

Agree, with one addition: late spring/early summer twilight as the frogs begin croaking.

I used to listen to them when I was a kid, so it's kind of fun to listen to them now. Every single episode is available for download at cbsrmt.com.
