Cycling in the city requires a level of focus that doesn't always mix well with music. But if you have access to a trail or park, the combination of tunes, fresh air, and speed can be totally invigorating.
Most riders will find that songs with 140 beats per minute match their pedaling pretty closely so this playlist focuses on songs around that tempo. Try a few to see which speed best suits your riding style, or if you're feeling ambitious, pedal through all ten to replicate the sort of interval workout you'd find in a spin class—but with much better scenery.
