What gets me up for riding

It’s fall here in Austin, Texas and the weather couldn’t be better: dry, sunny and anywhere between 65 and 85 degrees.  Just perfect.  As usual, I was jamming to my favorite playlist on my iPod this song came on:

Now you may not be a big fan of Nastasha Bedingfield, but the lyrics in this song pretty much describe what riding is for me: a sweet escape and my pocket full of sunshine.  Especially on days like today and pretty much the whole week.

Other iPod favorites that really get me going are the fastest 2 minutes in Rock n’ Roll (i.e., the Ramones), Fort Minor’s Remember the Name, any Doors song and pretty much anything by Linkin Park.  I like a lot of other music, too.  Sometimes it’s Reggae, other times its Blues.  Good thing I live in Austin where you can find pretty much anything to suit your tastes.

What gets you pumped up for riding?

  1. I’d say it’s the chance to go to a new place and see something new. Another thing is the challenge of beating a personal best.
