Top 5 Playlists That Will Make Your Bike Commute More Bearable
Biking to work is a great way to be environmentally friendly and feel less guilty about snagging a second cupcake from the break room at lunch. Still, some days you won’t feel like cycling your way to the office. Music helps. Here are the top Spotify playlists for making your commute not only more bearable but also a bit of fun:
- Cycling Playlist by Henry Galbraith
This long playlist, crafted with cyclists in mind, has a whopping 394 songs on it. There is something for everyone. Most selections are high energy and upbeat – you can start with jams like “Sail” by AWOLNATION or “Without Me” by Eminem.
- Indoor Cycling Jump Songs by Peter Gonzalez
This crafty list is named for indoor cycling but it will also motivate you through an outdoor commute. With 103 songs including “American Woman” by Lenny Kravitz and
“Jump” by Kriss Kross, this collection of riding songs will make you a bit nostalgic while it gives you energy on your commute.
- Beaches and Bicycle Rides by JC White
Even if your morning commute doesn’t take you past the coast, this playlist will get you going. It features 227 songs by a combination of mainstream and independent artists. Start with “Let’s Go Crazy” by Prince to get yourself going and sail into the office listening to “You and Me” by Dave Matthews Band.
- Mellow Morning by Spotify
If you’re not ready for the upbeat until you get your first hit of free coffee at the office, you’re in luck. This intentionally serene playlist with 95 songs eases you into your day with songs like “Beyond” by Leon Bridges and “Let it Go” by James Bay. You’ll enter the office with a relaxed mindset.
- Evening Commute by Spotify
When the day is done and you’re staring down a commute back home, music may be just the boost you need. One of the best bike playlists for riding home is this 54 songs-collection with songs like “Blinded” by Emmit Fenn and “Doubt” by Shallou. With these smooth songs in your ears, riding home after a long stressful meeting becomes bearable.
Now that you have your playlists saved, it’s time to think about how you’ll get your daily dose of music. The best way to listen to music on a bicycle is via a handsfree speaker or wireless earbuds. Regular earbuds can work too, just be sure to drape the wires beneath a layer of clothing when you can so they don’t get unexpectedly tangled in your hands or caught on a zipper.
