'Tear Apart' Spinning

This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 12404)

This was a ride I've done a few times recently. I usually download the songs and mix them with Mixmeister. The two-digit numbers are 'number of rotations for a 15 second count'. That way I make sure the cadence of the class is not too fast or slow. Some of the songs won't work with cadence...the participants just have to 'feel' the speed (with effective coaching).

45 minute ride. Keep in mind that I changed the bpm on some of these songs so if you download, they will be different. Therefore, the cadence counts won't work. I'm not a slave the beat but I find that some people work harder when they don't have to think about their pedal speed...it's done for them if they stay on the beat. The only variable they have to work on is amount of resistance and I help them by setting a scale from 1-10. 1=no resistance (we don't ride here except cool down; 10=total resistance (we don't ever ride here). I'll coach them to stay between 5-8 for 80% of the class. 4=recovery. Sorry so long!
