I'm training for a ride across Canada, so I need to spend hours on my trainer.

I also am like every other citizen in North America (it seems) and I own an ipod.

So, does anyone have a good playlist that they use for trainers? I'm looking for maybe a 30 minute, 45 and 60 minute playlist.

Or, since I've seen Lance and Hincapie with the white headphones, does anyone know their playlists?

Personally, I like to listen to any album, start-to-finish, that's high-energy and has song tempos close to the cadence I ride (~90 bpm). Riding along with the beat makes the time pass much faster for me. Slower songs can be used for simulated "climbing", while faster ones can be used for spinning. I find that 311 songs are almost always in the right tempo range (maybe that's why they all sound so similar!). If I'm feeling particularly psyched (or particularly UNmotivated and need a good kick in the ass), I'll put on some aggressive metal or gangsta rap, such as Sepultura's "Chaos AD" or Dr. Dre's "The Chronic." Funny, I'm usually an indie rock sorta guy, but it doesn't exactly have a beat you can dance -- er, ride to.

Cheers,
Ari

4.3 hours! NICE!! I think the last song of that playlist for me would be "911 is a Joke" to remind me who I should call since I'd be on the ground dead.

Ok, this is going to put me in geek territory, but I've really been enjoying listening to audiobooks. Seems that the 2x20 level 4 intervals go by a lot easier when I'm listening to a story.

Just got through a James Patterson book (can't remember which one, they're really all the same -- great mental junkfood)The Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer are GREAT. Just started the unabridged Chronicles of Narnia, and am enjoying the Magician's Nephew. Also good would be the Harry Potter books (I've listened to 'em all). Even some more high brow stuff can be enjoyable -- Farenheit 451, read by Ray Bradbury was awesome.

The audiobooks are really only good for the trainer, since you don't have to worry about wind noise, etc (if you are one who also rides on the road with music).

Wow! Excellent musical taste, my friend ... Palomar, Broken Social Scene, Minor Threat, SOAD, The Faint, Superchunk, Stooges ... but whattup with the Dave Matthews? I'll forgive you because it's just "warm up" music. j/k ;-) I'll admit, I listened to DMB in college, but that was just to get girls. Yeah, I was "that guy" who broke out the guitar at parties and played "Crash Into Me," but hey, it worked like a charm.

Cheers,
Ari

Right now, my training indoors is involving quite a bit of 5 minutes on, 5 minutes off type of training. So, the Ipod is loaded with uptempo/downtempo ttype stuff. Can't remember it all right now, but here's an excerpt:

Bollock Brothers/Harley David, Nine Inch Nails/Love is Not Enough, Gorillaz/Dare, Ian Drury and the Blockheads/Hit me, Echo and the Bunnymen/Lips like sugar, Wilco, Police, White Stripes, INXS, The Smiths (Morrissey), a small bit of Elvis Costello, and some ABC to top it all off....

For Intensity

Road Runner cartoons on the TV with the sound turned down, and classic Motorhead with the sound turned up. Can't beat the combination.
