DEAD SPIN THIS SATURDAY 4:00 (November 23rd)
Last spring we posted an article about the "levels" of Grateful Dead fans (albums, "eras", specific shows) and we listed a few shows considered some of the best of all time. You can read that post by clicking here. Grateful Dead spin class?
To the uninitiated, a spin class set to Grateful Dead music might seem impossible and bizarre. Bizarre? maybe. Impossible? No. In fact, the rhythmic nature of a classic Grateful Dead jam is almost ideally suited to a good steady endurance effort on the bike. The regular Wellesley spin classes and Boston spin classes you would normally attend are primarily interval sessions. When we do our bi-annual 90 minute "Dead Spin" class, we do longer segments and attempt mind/body immersion using only the endorphins produced by our own bodies.
The Grateful Dead spin class has become a staple of Spynergy in Wellesley and invariably sells out. If a first time indoor cyclist stumbles in unaware ---- I'm sure they find it exhilarating, or shocking....but not boring. For a sense of what to expect if you stop in, take a peek at this video.
