Thanksgiving 2017 Indoor Cycling Video Class – It’s Time to Reflect

This year for my Thanksgiving week classes I’ve decided to focus on reflection.  All the songs in my playlist have lyrics that make me reflex on life.  The good, the bad, wins, losses, life, death, memories, the future, hope and what I can do to make this world a better place.

Here’s the playlist:

“He walks on up the hill to the rock on which he stands
He looks back at the crowd
He looks down at his hands and he says
I am a difference maker”

 

“I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls
That hold me inside.
I wanna reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name”

 

“I wish I could go back to playing barbies in my room
They never say that you gotta grow up, quite this soon
How fast things change, and now I’m here
And all I wanna do
Is go back to playing barbies in my room”

 

“This train carries saints and sinners
This train carries losers and winners
This train carries whores and gamblers
This train carries lost souls
I said, this train dreams will not be thwarted
This train faith will be rewarded
This train hear the steel wheels singin’
This train bells of freedom ringin'”

 

“I believe when the Kingdom comes
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed into one
But yes I’m still running.
You broke the bonds
You loosened the chains
You carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for”

 

“And when you call and need me near
Sayin’ where’d you go?
Brother, I’m right here
And on those days when the sky begins to fall
You’re the blood of my blood
We can get through it all”

 

“How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here”

 

“Come out upon my seas
Cursed missed opportunities am I
A part of the cure
Or am I part of the disease”

 

“It’s better to feel pain, than nothing at all
The opposite of love’s indifference”

 

“I wish somebody would have told me that
Some day, these will be the good old days
All the love you won’t forget
And all these reckless nights you won’t regret
Someday soon, your whole life’s gonna change
You’ll miss the magic of these good old days”

 

“Let’s take a little trip down where we used to go
It’s way beyond the strip, a place they call your soul
We’ll sit down for a while and let the evening roll”

 

“If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

It’s a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they’re better left unsung
I don’t know, don’t really care
Let there be songs to fill the air

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again
Let it be known there is a fountain
That was not made by the hands of men

There is a road, no simple highway
Between the dawn and the dark of night
And if you go no one may follow
That path is for your steps alone

Ripple in still water
When there is no pebble tossed
Nor wind to blow

You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone
If you should stand then who’s to guide you?
If I knew the way I would take you home”

This is Red Rocks – Profile 1 (Profile and Video)

Twenty-two years about I moved out west to Denver.  I had never been to Colorado, all I knew is that it was full of fitness fanatics, the Mecca for triathletes, John Denver made it sound like Heaven, and it was the home of an amazing concert venue named Red Rocks.

I’ll never forget the day I first heard about Red Rocks.  I was hanging out with a high school friend, Ken McCown.  Up to that point, I mostly listened to classic rock.  But Ken was more of alternative guy.  He just bought a new album, “Under a Blood Red Sky (Live)”, by this new band U2.  As we listened, Ken predicted that U2 would be the next Led Zepplin, to which I laughed, and he spoke of the venue where this album was recorded, Red Rocks Ampethiature like it was a mystical place where magical things happened.

Well, Ken was right.  U2 became the next Led Zepplin, and magic does happen at Red Rocks, just ask anyone who has ever experienced a show surrounded by the red rock while gazing onto the Great Plaine viewing the curvature of the earth.

Last year I was hired by Stages Cycling to be the Brand Manager for VisomX, an indoor cycling group display system.  Stages recently acquired VismoX and renamed it, Stages Flight.  The goal of an indoor cycling group display system is to create a magical experience for class participants.  Most of these systems show rider metrics on a large TV or are projected onto a screen.  This keeps cyclists accountable and competitive and improves the rider experience, but if that’s it there’s no room for progression.  You only get a board full of numbers.  Other systems display rider metrics and include a video game feel to the experience with avatars and team or full class challenges like racing through a time warp or creating a circle of fire.  Cool, but as any gamer knows the lifespan of a game that doesn’t progress or add levels is about a week as experiences get boring very quickly.

Stages Flight gives the instructor all the features of the above-mentioned systems plus the flexibility to create their own signature experience.  Stages Flight will display rider metrics, has an avatar based race mode, will allow for team and full class competitions, but will also enable the instructor to incorporate their own video and vision into the riding experience. This can be a music video, cycling footage, slideshows, scenery, or anything the instructor feels will enhance the rider experience.  With Stages Flight, instructors are no longer limited by the code written by developers; they are set free to let their imaginations soar and create a riding experience that could only have been dreamed of a year ago.

Below is a video of the experience I created for my riders this past week. It takes them to that magical place in Morrison Colorado, Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
