    (from Ministry of sound sessions double CD:)
    Mylo- Muscle Car: "Well oiled, that's what you are, c'mon, and ride, in my muscle car." dodgy lyrics but at least it makes me think im a machine

    Michael Jackson- Billy Jean
    Bon Jovi- It's My Life "... it's now or never, i ain't gonna live forever. I am gonna live while im alive."
    Groove Armada- any really chill tracks, for when you need to keep HR down.

    U2-Desire, Hollywood Tonight Remix, for rides through the city. The cadence is high enough to make you a fast target, harder to hit!

    Pink Floyd - Bike

    "I've got a bike
    You can ride it if you like
    Its got a basket, a bell that rings
    And things to make it look good.
    I'd give it to you if I could
    But I borrowed it"

    Written by the legendary Syd Barrat, before his indulgence for chemicals turned him into a complete nutter. Actually, taking another look at the lyrics, the chemicals may have already taken their toll.

    As an aside, someone should take aside a couple of the posters on this forum and have a quiet word. I mean, Kenny Loggins...

    hey, loggins and messina did rock, though.
    more from syd barrett. "madcap laughs".



    "interstellar overdrive." no guitar rock can match this one unless evolved enough to lose the essence of primal gut instinct.
    a genius for our times he was (is?)

    I was thinking the same thing myself - even though some may think it's more of a motorcycling song - this one's got my vote....

    For those hard intervals, something like Rob Zombie usually does the trick. I used to listen to Rob Zombie - Never Gonna Stop quite a bit while lifting weights.


    Yeah never gonna stop me
    Never gonna stop
    Never gonna stop me
    Never gonna stop
    Never gonna stop me
    Never gonna stop
    Never gonna stop me
    Never gonna stop

    Scream if you want it, cause I want more
    Scream if you want it, cause I want more

    I do think though that cycling doesn't have a song on the same level that runners have with Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run. It's one of the greatest songs ever.

    Chris Isaak "Gone Ridin" it's a cadence booster on a long ride.

    Another "oldie but goodie" popped into my head as I was reading some of these - came out circa 1980:

    "Ride Like The Wind" - Christopher Cross

    It is the night, my body's weak, I'm on the run, no time for sleep
    I've got to ride, ride like the wind, to be free again

    CHORUS
    And I've got such a long way to go (such a long way to go), make it to the border of Mexico
    So I ride like the wind, ride like the wind

    I was born the son of a lawless man, always spoke my mind with a gun in my hand
    Lived nine lives, gunned down ten, gonna ride like the wind

    Chorus

    Accused and tried, and told to hang, I was nowhere in sight when the churchbells rang
    Never was the kind to do what I was told, gonna ride like the wind before I get old

    Repeat first verse

    Chorus

    Lyrics may not have anything to do with bikes but the idea of riding fast....:)
