At The Bike Café it’s been another incredible year in a world that’s becoming progressively frantic. The Bike Café a go-to source for active indoor cyclers, cycling instructors to share profiles, playlists, music ideas as well as indoor cycling expertise. In 2015 over 206,270 visitors from 182 countries stopped at café.

2015 was a peculiar year for cycling music, no breakaway hit like in the past, in 2012 it was Wake Me Up and in 2011 it was 50 Ways to Say Goodbye that became favourites.  Most of the finest songs arrived in the latter half of the year.  Great new tunes came from David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Avicii. But the most preferred songs that is still on most cycling and spinning playlists are these all-time favourites.


Come With Me Now is a 3:32 hit from the KONGOS, this alt rockers from South Africa ensure this song was to be a massive hit and it went in America to number 31 and reached number 7 in Canada where it at first battled to find an audience. It is a 2011 release but didn’t feature on any charts until 2014 Come With Me Now is still one of the most played songs preferred by cyclers and spinning instructors and it is wickedly challenging.

Geronimo is a song you have to love everything about by Sheppard it is a 3:38 track with catchy chorus, it has relentless energy, the most inspirational lyrics and motivates anyone to take a leap of faith.  It’s the second single from this Australian band based in Brisbane whose debut album went to number 1 in Australia, became Austria’s top 10 hit and also captivated listeners in Germany, New Zealand, Italy and Poland. The song is especially inspiring, it is the perfect warmup or a seated flat.

Uptown Funk from Bruno Mars adds 4:31 to your cycling playlist and you just have to love the cross-over control of it.  Cycling fanatics who prefer classic rock and Top 40 will be equally pleased with this danceable hit.

Arno Cost & Norman Doray adds 5:54 to your workout with their cheeky disco beat delivered in Strong. The song is covered in uplifting encouraging lyrics, faultless for a combo with irregular intermissions of uphill and flat road.

Taylor Swift gets cyclers to Shake it Off for at least 3:39 minutes. The young Swift certainly brought it on in 1989 with her album, the song debuted at number one the Billboard Top 100.  You have to love the message, the lyrics of the song transpires to work impeccably for standing climb or jumps.

All About that Bass offer 3:38 minutes of great music by Meghan Trainor. The song’s such an earworm, everyone sings it hit the Trainers list and then Trainor got her hits to the number one positions in Canada, USA and in an astounding 56 other countries. This song is what every trainer wants for jumps or challenging seated climbs.  All About that Bass and Shake it Off are probably the 2 songs that got the most airplay during 2014.

Waves performed by Mr. Probz give the best so far from the Dutch hip hopper when you trying to get a powerful playlist for a spinning class and add energy for 3:28 minutes. Robin Schulz released the popular remix that went straight to number one in six countries. Close your eyes & just ride.
