Jock Jams

Sports and music go together like a ballgame and a cold beer. The pre-game pump-up jams, the late-inning rally tunes, even the halftime marching band staples – music plays an undeniable role in any sporting contest for both the athletes and the spectators. (Speaking of which, here’s my favorite icebreaker: If you were a Major League Baseball player, what would your at-bat song be?)

For your CycleBar® rides during this month of madness, crank up this stadium-worthy playlist and imagine the roar of the crowd carrying you to the finish. It’s a guaranteed winner.
