Tracks for on track – a Bike Night Playlist

Share Article

An upbeat playlist is essential to not only get you up COTA’s famous Turn 1 hill but also to tune an evening at Bike Night Presented by Ascension Seton your way.  

Pour on the speed with Garbage and Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds. (Pro tip: See them live at Germania Insurance Amphitheatre on Sunday, June 18, 2023.) 

“Cities in Dust” by Garbage is for those seeking a thrilling ride. The electric guitar and booming drums will be more than enough to push you to the edge. 

“You Know We Can’t Go Back” by Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds keeps bikers on their saddles with its upbeat, head-bobbing melody and magnetic chorus. 

Are you an F1 fan? Let these hype songs take the wheel as part of your Bike Night playlist. 

Carlos Sainz was onto something when he claimed “Smooth Operator” by Sade as his song.  Sway with the saxophone and keep pedaling like a smooth operator with this jam. 

Shake off all fears and follow Sergio Perez’s path. “Color Esperanza” by Diego Torres keeps the Mexican driver motivated to make it to the finish line. ¡Sí se puede! 

Reach for the stars and ride to “Homecoming” by Kanye and Chris Martin. George Russell never fails to get in the zone with this bop.  

Take a breather and slow down for a bit of rest with Charles Leclerc’s classical, original compositions “AUS23 (1:1)” and “MIA23 (1:2).” 

Keep the cadence in your last laps with fuel from these tunes. 

No weather warning this time. Be the lighting on the track and blast “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons. The beats of this song will make you feel electric. Did you know they performed at COTA in 2019? 

Go, go, go – it’s your birthday! “Stayin Alive x In Da Club (Mashup Remix)” by Bull Beats is the perfect mix for those that want a groovy AND swaggy ride. 

Have a good time before the time is up with “Time of Our Lives” by Pitbull and Ne-Yo. If you’re having a hard time on track, just remember, Mr. Worldwide has been there, done that. 

Like Marving Gaye and Tammi Terrell once said, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” to stop your bike ride at the one and only purpose-built Formula 1 track. That 133-foot elevation gain is not enough to keep cyclists from getting to the finish line. 

What’s a workout without some Bad Bunny? The beat of Titi Me Preguntó and the hype of Después de la Playa make these songs a must for an evening of biking.  

Don’t skip this track! We’ll see you for Bike Night Presented by Ascension Seton.
