Create Your Own Cycling Ringtone for Your Phone (I Did. Yup).

I was sitting at my desk when a text came through and my standard chime alerted me. I hate that chime… it sets me on edge.

I have custom ringtones for everyone that matters to me. Breathe by Ministry for my wife. The Imperial March from Star Wars for my eldest daughter, “It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die” from Despicable Me for my youngest daughter, the Miami Vice Theme for my wife’s family in Florida, the Knight Rider theme for all of my cycling friends (all 40 of them)… and I do a custom ringtone for all other calls (currently Insolence Poison Well – it’s BAD@$$… I love hearing my phone ring).

I make all of my own ringtones, too, so I don’t have to pay for music, then pay for ringtones as well.

So that text tone at my desk… I thought, what short sound would put a smile on my face when a text comes through?

My Venge… my Venge makes me happy. My Venge shifting would make me very happy…

When I got home, I hooked my Venge up to the trainer, loosened the resistance knob, set up my phone’s recorder by the rear wheel, and recorded a few shifts and a second of freewheeling, then converted it to a ringtone.

Now, every time I get a text, it puts a smile on my face.


If you don’t know how to create your own ringtone, a search engine and a keyboard will lead you to step-by-step instructions.


  1. I’d totally do this, but, well, nobody ever calls me…. 😭🤣

    Damn iPhone makes it hard to do this. It should be SO easy. I tried the other week, and it seemed an app was the only way, and boy are they shit! I had a really old phone years back and it was dead easy to do just this… 😦

      🍎 wants you to pay for everything, so they do… my Galaxy was INFINITELY easier. Still, using GarageBand, I can do more with the iPhone than I could my Galaxy. It’s just a lot more involved.

        Yep. Ripping us for the basics like RAM for years. It’s good quality stuff so you don’t mind paying extra, but they really take the piss for the extra stuff. Anyway, I file this stuff under ‘luxury problems’ and it usually goes away 😉
