ROCK’TOBER at Grit Cycle

Happy October Gritties!

Welcome to our first-ever Roc⚡️-Tober, where we are rockin-and rolling all month long and partying EVERY DAY!!!

It’s a new month, an official new season, we have new GRIT apparel in the shop, so we thought we’d “rock” this harvest out with the theme of ROC⚡️’tober where we will bring you rock-n-roll theme rides every week at both studios, and culminate it out on Halloween where the staff will dress up as their favorite music legend.

On Wednesday October 4th at 4:15pm we will hold our Punk Theme Ride. Molly will be leading the Costa Mesa crew, and Shannon will be taking care of you guys down in Monarch Beach.

Classic Rock Wednesday October 11th at 9:30am with Gretchen in Monarch Beach,  and Friday  October 13th with Dani {instructor of the month ride} in Costa Mesa.

Alternative Rock on Sunday October 15th at 9:30am with Dani in Costa Mesa  and Alex will lead one on Saturday October 21st in Monarch Beach at 8:15am.

Get your Metal with Sunday October 22nd at 10:45am with Cassie in Costa Mesa, and Thursday October 26th at 4:15pm {a Karma Ride} with Gretchen + Jess in Monarch Beach.

In honor of Roc⚡️tober we asked the staff what are some of their favorite rock-n-roll hits, and put them together in a Spotify playlist for you.

Here’s what they had to say:

I love classic rock. It always brings me right back to some sort of memory or happy place; it’s hard to choose just one… but I would have to say “Free Bird” by Lynyrd Skynyrd is my top pick. -Zoe

Mama, I’m Coming Home“-Ozzy Osbourne-Andrea

I looooove Barbie Girl by Aqua!! Once Jess played it in class for my bday ride, it was awesome….but the whole class, couldn’t quite figure out why! haha.-Kat

Africa” by Toto-Leigh

Jump” by Van Halen –Danielle

“The Stroke” by Billy Squier, “Girls” by the Beastie Boys, and “Highway to Hell” by ACDC-Cassie

Cute Without the “E” by taking back Sunday, “Writing on the Walls” by Underoath, “In Fear and Faith” by Circa Survive, and “Notion” or “Closer” by Kings of Leon- Marisa A.

“Coup d’Etat” by Refused. “Hail to the King” by Avenged Sevenfold. “Brain Damage” by Pink Floyd. “Kickstart my Heart” by Motley Crue. “My Michelle” by Guns N Roses. “Razorblade Kiss” by HIM. “I can keep going if you want more!“-Dani

“EVERYTHING Smashing Pumpkins! Siamese Dream is my favorite album,  “Sweet Sweet” and “Luna.” “Iris” by the Goo Goo Dolls and “One” by Metallica.-Nicci 

My top 5 with a 6th thrown in for good measure are: “Everlong” by Foo Fighters, “Come as You Are” by Nirvana, Escape from Hellview by CKY, “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns n Roses, “Voodoo Child” by Jimi Hendrix, “Trilogy Suite Op. 5” by Yngwie Malmsteen, “Slither” by Velvet Revolver, and “Clap Hands” by Tom Waits-Abby
