    I sing and ride all the time.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    I've never ridden a bike and sung at the same time, but I've skated and sung

    Thanks for reminding me. I need to add "Shock The Monkey" to my iPod so I can crank it up when I'm riding in traffic.

    Ride? Yes
    Sing? No.
    Both at the same time? There would probably be a rip in the space time continuum resulting in all of the universe being ripped into tiny shreds with a violence unheard of, even in biblical scriptures.


    edit: Great song btw.

    I do it all the time...unless riding with people...who can hear
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    Singing and riding... cake. However, can you fart and ride?

    I don't mean rest, sit up, and drop an air bagel. I'm talking about in the saddle, keeping a high cadence and unleashing a peloton splitting cheek flapper.

    No chamois is safe.

    I recommend "I have The Touch".
    Personal favourite.

    PS. I actually think I may have sung snippets of Solsbury Hill when riding.
    My snippet collection is vast

    Actually, I am more likely to whistle. Not sure why. But I do it all the time. Not sure what people think of it.

    Okay then. So do you think you should start a thread for this?

    I can't sing even when I'm not riding a bike.

    That video is one of the reasons why Peter Gabriel is so cool. Definitely one of the best concerts I've ever seen.

    That's not talent, it's just a genetic gift.

    I only sing if I feel like hearing people tell me to shut up.

    I think of a single ride where I don't sing. I get odd stares often. But not because of the singing.

    I can barely walk and talk at the same time. Besides, I'm annoying enough as it is without adding singing to the list.

    That said, nice Moulton, Mr. Gabriel.
