Cycling is suffering. Fausto Coppi, Il Campionissimo, said so.

And this playlist of dirges, misery, melancholy and musical moodiness is perfect for the cyclist that doesn't want to ignore the pain but finds strength in leaning into the donkey work.


A bicycle exalts its rider, and a bike ride emancipates the soul, calling to the hero inside.

Eroica is a 16-song, 53-minute playlist of swiftness, scrappiness and siren-song struggle to invigorate the heart and make heroes legends.

“Sing to me of the hero, Muse, the hero of sweat and fatigue. Much have I suffered, labored long and hard by now, in the heat of July and the hills of Colorado Springs. There is no finer, greater gift than the 719 Ride” — Ottavio Severo

The Fifth Lap

Five laps of The Course That Cannot Be Defeated gives cyclists a ruthless tour of repetition, and 45% of 719 Ride participants complete fewer than five laps.

The Fifth Lap cycling playlist presents 29 songs and 106 minutes of gas in your tank musical strains to keep you going when your legs get thick, your chain skips and your tires start to stick. Now, GET STUCK IN!
