Music on the Road I
Music has been a focus of every road trip that I have ever done. The Rapha Continental tour of the U.S. is no exception.
Music can enhance an experience or provide a necessary escape. Music has a memory, just hearing a song or set of lyrics can take you right back to a moment in time (e.g. singing along and pounding air drums as Phil Collins cranks through the stereo on a quiet Wisconsin freeway), but, at the same time, music can also be another method of escape. As the minutes turn into hours and the hours turn into days, placing your headphones over your ears may be the only way to escape the cramped van - to escape it all.
In an effort to bring some of our road experiences to life we have assembled a collection of songs inspired by our travels through the States. They are relevant to and inspired by the particular rides, regions, and roads experienced thus far on the Rapha Continental tour. For the next three Wednesdays we will be adding a new playlist to the collection.
