In this episode of the Semi-Pro Cycling Podcast I talk about increasing your riding performance by listening to music. You may or may not already listen to something while you ride, but I will present a compelling argument for listening as a training tool. If you are afraid to listen to music while riding you will find this argument compelling, and even change your mind. I dig deeper by looking at three ways music can help your performance, including training with and without music and racing with music, a little hack that is not illegal.
I also do a mini review of the new options, and there are many, for listening to music on your bike. I split these into 6 categories and give my run down on each. At the end of this episode I hope you will go out and choose some music to ride with and report your results back to me. I am interested in knowing what you ride to and how you believe it affects your performance. Either way hit me up on twitter with any comments or suggestions.
