Hypnosis for cycling
I use hypnosis for cycling every time I’m out on my bike and during each and every spin class that I attend. Pedaling down the road with the whirl of the wheels, the feel of the rubber on the pavement and the breeze in my face creates a wonderful trance.
Just this past Sunday I rode in the Kitsap Color Classic which is a ride that is organized by the Cascade Bicycle Club. It’s a fun ride that I have ridden annually for many years. It was a warm and beautiful day perfect for the 57 mile route. I discovered in the first couple mile that my shifter wasn’t working as it should and that I couldn’t get into the highest two gears. That slowed me down a bit but I did have the low gears for the big hills.
I used hypnosis for cycling before I left my driveway, at the rest stops and frequently with eyes wide open as I peddled. This was the longest ride I have been on all year. Usually by the end of the season I have several 100 mile rides completed but this year there were just too many life events. So bike hypnosis was even more valuable on this ride.
If you are a professional or amateur athlete or are a weekend warrior like me, sports hypnosis can help you to improve your game. Give me a call or send me an email and find out how hypnosis for sports can help you. We can meet in my Seattle hypnosis, Bainbridge hypnosis or online from anywhere in the world.

I ride like the wind.
Dancing on the pedals
Throughout the ride, I held the image of my feet, like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, dancing on the pedals. This gave me speed and energy for long flat stretches.
I remember as a kid watching movies with my Mom. I think it was an old Titanic movie, but it showed the engine room and the workers shovel coal into the boilers to produce steam. The pistons that propelled the shift were mammoth. On the multiple very steep hills, I envisioned my legs as powerful pistons easily propelling me up the hill.
I heard some riders suffering on these hills. They gave themselves powerful suggestions of “I can’t” and “this is too hard.” They ultimately got off their bike and pushed it up the hill. Whether you think you can or think you can’t, it’s all hypnosis!
