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

VeloBeats - a podcast made specifically for cyclists!!! check it out!

Guys,

Not trying to spam here. I am a road biker/racer and I think a lot of you guys will be interested in this.

I spent months listening to crap podcasts/DJ mixes that didnt' keep my pumped for my entire ride.

Eventually I started making my own and giving them out to friends. Now I am trying to make this a little more official and get a bigger audience. I know bikeforums is a popular place on the web for cyclists to congregate.

Down to the mix. It's 2 hours of house, trance, prog, dubstep, and DnB. Totally fast paced with a lot of cycling related clips in it!

download it from www.velobeats.com
and 'Like' it on Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/pages/VeloBe...8046386?ref=ts

Enjoy and 'ride lots'

Sounds pretty good from just the few minutes I've listened to so far. Guys on my team were just talking about what to listen to during rides, so I just posted this up on our boards. Keep it up man.

Awesome! Thanks.

Might want to make the DL link more prominent though.

There is SOME dubstep. The September and December mix have a bit more than Feb. I personally enjoy dubstep (even the dirty kind) but its a hard sell. Plus chicks don't like it I believe I have made a good compromise and have a good bit of Electro in the later mixes.

DUDE! Like VeloBeats on facebook, plenty of cool stuff going on there, hopefully enough to last you to March. I may start doing this bimonthly.

Stien...thanks a ton. I will put a download link on the main website page. The soundcloud 'widget' has it in it, but I agree it is difficult to find. Luckily I can send people to a direct download pretty easily from Soundcloud. I am in the process of *trying to get it uplaoded into iTunes podcast library.

I'm not much for this type of music but I can see how it would keep you motivated on a ride. I'm going to download it and try it out tonight on the rollers.

any chance of linking your podcast to itunes? soundcloud is not very iphone friendly.

FYI here's a great work-around for burning feeds with soundcloud and adding them to itunes. It would be a great resource if you could integrate this into your site.

https://docs.google.com/View?id=dfxg...3p537zgd&pli=1

ETA: this is a wordpress work-around. not sure what your back-end is built on though.

THANKS A TON guys!

I have been working on getting this into the itunes podcast library, but it isn't showing up! I will try your workaround again today.

You can download them directly from the soundlouds account.

http://soundcloud.com/velobeats

or by adding a /download.mp3 to the individual soundcloud links.

http://soundcloud.com/velobeats/velo...1/download.mp3
http://soundcloud.com/velobeats/velo...0/download.mp3
http://soundcloud.com/velobeats/velo...n/download.mp3
http://soundcloud.com/velobeats/velo...x/download.mp3

and so on.

I will let you guys know when it is in the podcast library.

Love it!

I have no problems getting it onto ITunes - just download the MP3 file, open ITunes, click on 'file', select 'add file to library', browse to your downloads folder to find the file, select it, and it's in your ITunes.

I'm actually looking forward to this evening's trainer ride.

I think what people are asking for is a podcast feed they can subscribe to without having to manually download and add to iTunes. My iphone is synced with a computer at home which means I cannot add files to it even though I have a computer with an internet connection here at work. If it's in iTunes, I can find the feed in the iTunes app and download them there. Otherwise, I'll have to wait till I get home to check them out.

Either way, good job
