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.

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.
