This smooth little tune caught my ear while I was riding in the car with my 17 year old one day and I asked her who was singing it, not really thinking she would know. Well, she did and I am glad, because I downloaded it and have been using it as a motivating mid-tempo climb. I”™ve been cueing to “ride smoothly, like the music is smooth”. Sometimes I forget to “chill out my moves” and be cool on my bike. It does make a difference in my form when I take the stress out. My class noticed a positive change as well, and as their instructor/coach, I certainly saw a change in how their bodies were moving on the bike.

Sam Sparro”™s “Black and Gold”, from his self-titled CD is 4:34 in the studio cut version and 68 bpm. Give it a listen and see if this will bring out your inner “coolness”. Not that your aren”™t already super chill!


Here's the Spotify link to Black and Gold

And this long remix maybe just what you need to set the mood for your next endurance class.
