The Matt Cord Show With Steve Vassalotti

SAN ANSELMO, CALIFORNIA - APRIL 06: Cari Gundee rides her Peloton exercise bike at her home on April 06, 2020 in San Anselmo, California. More people are turning to Peloton due to shelter-in-place orders because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Peloton stock has continued to rise over recent weeks even as most of the stock market has plummeted. However, Peloton announced today that they will temporarily pause all live classes until the end of April because an employee tested positive for COVID-19.

A Ride With The Boss…

As you all should know by now if you have been keeping up with some of my posts, I love to ride my bike outdoors. Whether that be riding it from South Philly to Bala Cynwyd for work, going on a 25-mile bike ride through many of the Jersey Shore towns, riding from Philly to the Jersey Shore for charity, or just riding with some friends while visiting the Delaware beaches – one thing is for sure, I can’t get enough bike rides.

Well, sometimes getting outside is not an option. Luckily, I have a Peloton, which I also love to do and it is a great alternative to riding outside when it is raining, too hot, or you are simply just too busy to ride miles away from your house.

Riding bikes is not the only thing I love either and being that I am a DJ for WMGK, I am sure most of you can guess that I also love classic rock, and in this particular case, Bruce Springsteen! So when there is a way to combine two things that I have a passion for, I am all ears!

As it turns out, Jenn Sherman constructed a 45-minute Bruce Springsteen sold-out show ride for the Peloton that has many of his classic tunes playing as you cycle. It is great motivation and has you forgetting that you are even riding for 45 minutes straight!

Jenn Sherman is a huge Bruce fan and is even a big Philadelphia Eagles fan since her husband is from the Philly area. Bike rides, Bruce, and the Eagles? I’m in!

The best part about the ride is that all the Bruce songs are from live shows spanning the entire course of his career, including “Out In The Street” live from his last show at the Spectrum in 2009 – a show that I broadcasted from back when I was with WMMR!

If you have a Peloton I definitely suggest giving this ride a shot, it is so fun! And for all the people who just love Bruce, I’ll post the tracklist for the ride below and maybe it’ll convince you to try this ride anyway you can!


The Tracklist

  • Song 1: Trapped (Live)

    What a way to get the ride started! On the setlist, it doesn’t specify which live show it is from so I figured I would share one from Philadelphia!

  • Song 2: Rosalita (Come Out Tonight) (Live At Paramount Park Theatre, Asbury Park, NJ - 11/24/1996)

    The classics keep rolling. What a tune. Everyone knows how legendary Bruce’s shows in Asbury Park are throughout the years!

  • Song 3: Out In The Street (Live at the Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA - 10/20/2009)

    The memories this one brings back! I still remember being there that night. What a show to close out an iconic arena.

  • Song 4: Bobby Jean (Live at Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA - 9/14/2016)

    Who doesn’t love this song? Plus, it was at Gillette Stadium where the Eagles are playing and winning week 1!

  • Song 5: Born To Run (Live at Madison Square Garden, New York City, NY - 05/23/1988)

    Maybe his most iconic song at the most iconic arena in the world! What a performance.

  • Song 6: Darkness On The Edge Of Town (Live at Wembley Arena, London, UK - 6/5/1981)

    From the most iconic arena in the USA to the most iconic arena in the UK. Bruce is worldwide, no doubt.

  • Song 7: Thunder Road (Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, NY - 09/21/79)

    This bike ride is like a time machine. Let’s go all the way back to 1979 and listen to the Boss jam!

  • Song 8: Wrecking Ball (Live at Giants Stadium, E. Rutherford, NJ - October 2009)

    Bruce playing in the home of one of the Eagles’ rivals. Though, they haven’t been much of a rival lately since the Eagles have dominated the series for years.

  • Song 9: Streets of Fire (Live at Winterland Arena, San Francisco, CA - 12/15/1978)

    What song to finish the ride to at the end. What a quick 45 minutes.

  • The Beginning of My Ride

    Matt Cord Peloton

    This is my point of view right before the class is about to start. I am pumped to hear some classic Bruce songs.

  • When "Out In The Street" Came On

    Peloton

    You know I had to go extra hard when one of the song I actually saw live came on. What a rush.

  • The End of The Ride

    Peloton

    At the end of the 45 minutes, I was ready for another ride! I can’t wait to do this again.
