I don’t normally ride with music, because I’m either talking to mates or worried about traffic. However, I make an exception for very big climbsl . I’m just thinking what my soundtrack will be on monster big climb day on our alpine tour, it includes the ominous sounding Colle dei Morti.. Suggestions welcome.
154kms and 4325 meters of climbing on day 6 ouch.
I’m thinking something like this.
Bob Marley and the Wailers Zimbabwe
White stripes Seven Nation Army
Violent Femmes blister in the sun
Bowie Ground Control to Major Tom
Talking heads Road to nowhere
Puccini Nesse Dorma
James sit down
Libertines cant stand me now
Long Blondes round the hairpin
Juluka Scatterlings of Africa
Bright blue Window on the world
Robin Auld. Beautiful day
Toten Hosen Zehn Kleine Jägermeister
Yello the race
Johannes Kerkorrel Ossewa
Gary Moore Over the Hills and Far Away
The Clash Should I stay or should I go?
Ngobo Ngobo Fine Young Man
Futureheads Hounds of love.
Kaiser Chiefs I predict a riot
the Killers Somebody told me
Franz Ferdinand This Fire
The view Dance into the night
Pigeon Detectives Stop and Go
It is a big hill, so I’ll need a few more tunes.
I’m planning to post photos, links etc in a shameless imitation of Will’s excellent cycling blog, cycling challenge. I’ll try and get maps, heart data. photos and so on all mashed up.
