St. Patty's Day Spinning Profile

I call this rolling hills ride The Hills and Dales of Ireland.

I found some good music ideas on Pedal-On, and I also asked the "Twitterati" (the Twitter universe) for some ideas and got some great music suggestions as well.

It's a series of 6 rolling hills; some mild, some steep, with fast down-hills and short vales in between. 
Picture pastures as green as can be, lined with short stone fences,

dotted with sheep, even along the road,

a bit foggy and rainy at times.

You'll roll through a small village here and there and hear bagpipe music wafting out of the pubs.

Hope this playlist doesn't make you feel like drinking green beer!

Hi Carly,
I also teach tomorrow, March 18, the day AFTER St Pats and I'm doing the same ride! That way they can celebrate after the fact! (And I don't need to create a new profile and playlist - it's a different club).

Tonight went awesome for this ride. Everyone loved the music, and it was a tougher ride than I anticipated. Although we're still base building, supposedly, I think it was hard to stay below threshold!

Oh well, it won't kill them...
