This workshop shares techniques to develop a syncopated interplay between your indoor cycling profile, drills, cues, and songs.  Helping you move from creating playlists to curating them.

Sunday, October 29:  230 - 430 pm         
Mint Gym and Studio 1724 California St NW -- for more info email drucycles@gmail.com

High performing instructors purposefully choose the order and timing of songs, vary volume to create an undulating tempo -- syncopating sound with movement.  Similar to the conductor of an orchestra, cycling instructors should understand and control every aspect of music.  They create a dynamic experience for the audience where minute details become meaningful and epic moments are created from the music.  

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify songs based on their structure
  • Use music conductor techniques to create an undulating profile  
  • Align cycling drills to songs
  • Find cycling profiles from classic races
  • Build epoch based rides to create space for coaching, cueing and recovery

n addition to handouts, students will receive a playlist with 12 songs.  Each participant will be tasked with creating a curated playlist within 14 days.  2 weeks of online coaching will be provided for those who submit a playlist.
