Video: Gossy’s goal and dream training soundtrack

When it comes to keeping myself amused on a journey, I must admit I'm more I-spy than i-pod.

But those who know about these things, keep telling me the best way to while away all those long hours I'm spending in the saddle for my B-to-B training is to download the earphone music that will keep the pedals pounding.

Give me a cassette marked 'Best of the Boss' to click into an old-fashion tape player, and Springsteen and I can wheel away for England. But ask me to select the same songs from itunes, and I'm afraid I'm back in the Stone Age.

Still, I know I've got to get there, and I can feel a session with my 12-year-old twins coming on to learn what to do.

So after much deliberation, and as a Rock Child of the Eighties here's my Top Ten Songs to Cycle by:

So if you hear someone in yellow Lycra belting out 'Born in the USA' around the lanes of Belton this week, my advice is invest in a pair of earplugs.
