  1. Hello!

    I was wondering how the music in spinning classes are choosen. I have read info on the net, that
    when cycling you should have about 90 revolutions per minute, and slightly higher when spinning
    (around 120 revs). How is the music choosen, is it based on the BPM (beats per minute)? I have
    measured the BPM of the music of the classes I take, the BPM of the is about 140-150. And does
    anyone have any links to info about how the instructors design their classes? /nisse

    Ack! Much better to get out on a real bike & do some proper cycling. Get fit whilst enjoying the
    scenery instead of being in a sweaty gym affair :)

    have to wait about 1-2 month before I can go out on the roads an cycle.

    Oh, Helen:

    You sound like one of those retro people that want to cycle in the fresh air, enjoy the country side
    and see the world.

    Strictly Retro.

    Modern nd progressive is to drive to a Gym where you can listen to rock music played at full
    throttle while bouncing around on a "spin bike", following instructions shouted over the PA system
    by some cute instructor."

    Strictly Retro....

    No, it's not an april fools joke, I'm genuinly interested in knowning how the music in spinning
    classes are choosen so that the RPM are right. It may be a stupid question or even in the wrong
    forum, but it is not a aprol fools joke. In retrospect I should perhaps choosen another day to post
    thought. ;)

    I found this link http://www.turnstep.com/Patterns/1998/May/May08.2.html It suggest that the beat of
    the music i roughly double that of the cadence. Does that sound right? /nisse

    Now I know why so many of my ancestors moved from there to warm, balmy South Dakota.

    What's a metric mile? My CatEye cyclo computer doesn't have an option for these.

    1 metric mile = 10 km (kilometers) 1m = 100cm 12 inches = 30 cm

    Hmm.. this solves everything ;) /nisse
