What song fuels your mountain biking memories?
For the past five weeks I have been trapped in a DIY prison and reminiscing about biking trips and holidays gone by. Those endless summer days in the Alps, friends who no longer ride etc. Don’t fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult is one of mine and also much of the Roam soundtrack.
I’m not riding so much at the moment, but it helps inspire me for new adventures.Posted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber
Feed Me, and the rest of the Replenish album by Reef always takes me back to lazy summer days, school holidays, my mate’s bedroom plastered with Mint Sauce cartoons, smoking reefers, drinking beers, big days out on the bikes with varying amounts of actual riding. Back when we used to have summers…Posted 4 years agojohnellisonMember
Crowded House – Take the Weather With You. Back in the day, the old Lancashire Mountain Bike Club/Burnley Rough Riders used to go away every Bank Holiday weekend, usually to Keswick. We somehow ALWAYS transpired to have that tune on the radio on the way up the M6…Posted 4 years agoBezSubscriber
About 20 years ago, two of us went for a month in a van round the south of France and bought “Drive Thru Booty” by Freakpower to play every day.

I was listening to just that track in the car on the way home last night, my thoughts jumping forward to a week riding in Garda this May and thinking what a good soundtrack it would make to the inevitable video.zangolinMember

Pretty much anything by Iron Maiden- galloping base lines go well with pedalling. Lots of stuff from soundtracks- mostly from Vast, it all just feels like riding
When I first started riding again I was listening to Emmy the Great a lot but I’m not sure why We Almost Had A Baby became the cycling song off that album. (maybe it’s because of all the crashing- well you didn’t stop, when I told you to stop…) It’ll always remind me of riding in the pentlands and vice versa.
