I always like to start with a slower song to warm myself and Taz up before our ride and then slowly increase the intensity throughout the ride. Similar to a good warm up song, I like to make sure my cool down tunes are soothing and slower as well. In a perfect world this would be the case, but it isn't most of the time! That being said, I stick by choosing a slower song for my warmup and for my cool down.
As you can tell, my rides are roughly around an hour, with breaks as needed. I like to ride for a specific amount of time, but what happens during the ride is always up in the air. Sometimes Taz gets a five minute break and sometimes he gets a two minute break, it really is dependant on his riding quality and what I want to work on in the moment.
