    Yes bad music is everywhere. Just get the Walkman so you can listen to Celine Dion etc.

    I tried headphones with C-tank and found out I don't last long enough for the second interval if I
    pedal to the rythm ;)

    Umm, my spinning class is different. Everybody is just a 24-year-old female university student. I
    doubt they are cyclists. You know hard core cyclists wear cycling gear in the gym too. (Just have a
    look at those pictures Burke loaned for his Serious Cycling.)

    : I know it sounds like I'm griping. Well ,I am! LOL. Actually it's a nice gym with great

    working the other muscles too.

    the sauna...

    I second that!!! I haven't been on my bike since my crash on Monday, and my skin is crawling to get
    back on it.
