The Sound of Music / 22.09.12

When riding through Switzerland I realized the hills were alive- with the sound of me panting for breath, and my gears grinding while going up hill after hill after hill. These sounds are depressing. To cover the sounds of suffering, I crafted a playlist entitled “legpain”. This masterpiece of compiled songs keeps me going day after day no matter the weather, terrain, or mood. After about 20 km of warm up I fire up these magical tunes, always keeping it on shuffle because- yes, my life really is that exciting.I figured I would let you all in on the goods that keep me going.
