It's tough to sync music to your cycling workout because of the range of speeds. To know which tempo will work best, you need to know your pedaling speed. But the speed can vary wildly depending on the gear, surface, and so on. Rather than trying to create an all-purpose playlist, the songs below represent the range between 70 BPM and 150 BPM-with one song for each 10 BPM addition. Incorporating these songs into a routine will let you find the tempo that works best for you.

Here's the full list, starting at 70 BPM:

The Lumineers - Ho Hey - 80 BPM
