The piece is quite good, the guitar duet is very nice. The mix is also pretty good. This said, it sounds 'standard', but what's wrong with 'standard' anyways ?

The only thing would be with the title. The piece does not sound like a bike ride, with the air in the face, the movments, the fluidity. If it's a bike ride, it sounds more like going at lot uphill :) In the rain :?

Jonetsu, hi! :) Thanks for comment! Sometimes i betray the holy spirit of experimentation to indulge in sweet sin rampant easy music, just to play as want my soul... for drink music cocktail in ordinary day :D

I agree, maybe the music is not so driving in order to depict speed skating on a bike, as I drive along the highway in the city, but in the countryside I like a slow and thoughtful ride in nature on forestparks.

Nice track, psyocean! This sounds like it was fun to record. How did you do the guitar effects? It sounds like you used a compressor and limiter, as well as the distortion?

I also have written music about cycling, and I often work on my songs while I am cycling or running. Being on a bicycle puts my brain in a creative mode. I think it is the musical rhythmicity of the experience: breathing, pedaling, gear noises, etc.

Milo, thanks!

My "principle" in last years - no soft effect in guitar line, only hardware processors and pedals. Powerful sound in combine: tube distortion (i use "Blackstar ht-metal") + guitar processor (i have Korg). On this track guitar sounded with inner processor in portstudio "Boss Br-800" (bought used in the secondary market very cheap :D ), it contained version guitar proc "Boss GT-20" + own drum machine module :idea: With programmable and factory patterns and sequenced. In improvisations I used factory sound and patterns, in album composition I create authors drum-parts:) Cheers! :wink:

Enjoyed this. Only critic really is that towards the end the guitars sounded a bit confused and fought rather than complemented each other.
