2 'Wheel-Ax' with Mozart

I'm going to try and steer some interesting articles to the blog next week. But for now, I bring to you Mozart. Tada! While cycling is refreshing, adding long mileages and high intensity work outs week after week can be stressful too.

I put together some of Mozart's pieces here. Ideas were taken from the "Strengthen the Mind" CD, one in Don Cambell's "Music for the Mozart Effect" Collection. Whether it be for a relaxing pre-nap session, clarity in thinking, visualizing your victory in the next big race on the calender, or gaining the confidence to go downhill at 70mph (see Bugno and music therapy), this will do some good or plenty of good. Approach with an open mind. You can top all this with some deep, belly breathing to make things more interesting. Credits to IMEEM.

And you could tell me how it went after all that. Ciao amici!

  2. Cool, if you're out of school, you should check bike company websites for possible careers in CAD or something related. Good luck.


Thank you. I read every single comment.
