Soon be resigning myself to a bit of turbo time. 

My ipod playlist includes a mix of Chemical Brothers, Lindstrøm, Muse, Santana and others.

What else is going to keep me smiling whilst in the saddle?

Bit of Chase and Status doesn't go amiss now and again...

Santana(!?)

Just play the whole of ' if you want blood' live album by ACDC. Obviously at volume 11. 52 minutes of inspiration.

I listen to this nonsense, which smashes along at about the pace my legs should be going round...

Die Antwoord or some One Eyed Doll or maybe a bit of SOAD.

Just realised - where's YorkshireWallet suggesting Slayer? Has he got lost on the way to these comments?

New Orbital album is fantastic, particularly P.H.U.K & Tiny Foldable Cities

Pendulum's Immersion album is always a go-to for me when I really want to smash it out.

I put the radio on as it's more distracting than music I know well.  Some of my fastest times on the turbo have been when I've been listening to Chris Moyles on Radio X (he can be a bit marmite, but I'm a child at heart and find him funny).

 

 

On a serious note - what does everyone do about headphone cables?  I don't have wireless ones for the turbo as I'd no doubt forget to charge the damn things and the "sport" ones have a tiny battery life compared to my big Sony ones which I use on the train. 

I've snagged the cable on numerous occasions now, one of these days I'll send my phone flying.  What does everyone else do?

I have a bluetooth speaker... no need for headphones in your sweaty ears!  Good ones available on amazon for not too much, and the batteries last ages before a charge needed.

@simonmb... clearly you like a bit of guitar music, so I can highly recommend Joe Bonamassa- new album Redemption will have an hour of turbo time flying by!

When I'm on the turbo I'm in a cycling jersey... so the iPod goes in one of the back pockets. Cables run up the inside, buds in ear. It's not actually an iPod, it's an iPhone, but you get my drift.

I go back to 80s metal with a mix of Metallica, Ac/DC, Helloween, Iron Maiden et al.

...And Justice for All (album) makes for a good session with a sting in the tail

Normally a mix of Sabaton, Powerwolf, Hammerfall and Alestorm.

Unless I'm short on time. In that case its Dragonforce. 15 minutes of that and I'm looking for my lungs and wondering if Wiggle sell new legs.....

Headphone wires are maddening when on rollers, I've recently switched to Enacfire wireless earbuds. They lack a bit of bass but the wirefree aspect is great.
