How I got into indoor cycling: After 30 years of brutal ground pounding (running and basketball), my doctor said “cycle and swim or I’m replacing your knees”. Shortly after, we founded Spynergy (now CycleBar) I hope 4 things happen for riders in my class 1) a great workout, 2) the time flies, 3) smiling and fun, 4) people leave “sparkly and euphoric”.
Music Mania: My core influence is Blues-oriented rock grooves (Clapton, Stones, JJ Cale, Allmans, Dylan), but my classes feature a broad spectrum of genres and eras: Talking Heads, Dave, Moby, Wilco, Nirvana, even Pitbull, Avicii, and Daft Punk. Yes, some trance music and pop. Lot’s of re-mixes from all eras. Clear focus on high-energy rhythms. Twice a year I do an all “Grateful Dead” spin (yes it CAN be done).
