    I'm looking for a new mix for the bike rides. For longer rides, I mix my tempos up and down. At this pace, I can't take much more than an hour. Any suggestions are much appreciated, and I would really like to some hear some newer bands. Mostly I listen to older uptempo rock that is charged with......; well, here are a couple of examples that always get my pedals churning.

    Are you talking like road biking (like Lance Armstrong style)? If so:

    I used to be really into running and cycling and I had a playlist that I'd just run on repeat. Love or hate some of these songs, I know a lot of them are corny but the pacing worked for me. Hopefully it'll be able to give you at least a song or two.

    The Verve - Sonnet
    The Verve- Bitter Sweet Symphony
    Yellowcard - Way Away
    Elvis - A little less conversation
    Tom Petty - running down a dream
    Kenny Chesney - i'm alive
    Love and Theft - runaway
    Dixie Chicks - several of them (fuck you)
    John Michael Montgomery - life's a dance
    50 cent, eminem, etc - You don't know
    Ram Jam - Black betty
    R Kelly (fuck you) - the world's greatest
    Aerosmith - dream on

    Yea, Sam. For longer rides, I switch up the tempos. Got some Chesney and other country on those. On the shorter ones (35 miles or less) I like to go harder, and the music helps. I see this was made into a new thread. Maybe it should be called The Best (or most kick-ass) Metal Songs Ever Thread. I'm really looking for uptempo here. Not to knock Maiden or Priest, just faster but still comprehensible.

    White Zombie - More Human Than Human

    AC/DC - Thunderstruck

    Metallica- Ride the Lightning

    That old industrial club music is great for riding fast too. I posted some on another thread. Maybe another thread for these.

    Not my favorite Metallica, but still a good riding song.

    ...............and going way back. As the comments suggest, this version is sped up; which works well for this.
