I Highly Recommend
 
Get yourself the Angels & Airwaves album and go for a ride

listen to the whole thing all the way through during your ride.

Doesn't have to be a hard ride, doesn't have to be a technical ride, just get it, listen to it while riding and enjoy, get your heart pumping, enjoy just being.

I was doing a lot of thinking today, the best things in life are seriously the smallest. Just try this, get on your bike, put on Angels & Airwaves, ride til it's done, restart and ride back.

Enjoy being outside, enjoy being in the saddle, enjoy doing what is we all love, enjoy just being.


May sound kind of dumb but for some it may be something great

Will this clash with my AC/DC?

You should atleast tell us what kind of music it is.

Im with Bikepacker I would be listening to good ol' rock n' roll or some metal while riding if I did listen to anything at all while riding (I dont like having chords and things to worry about to get snaged on a tree or a mp3 player to break when I fall.)

Techno is ok for at the gym, but I wouldnt want to listen to it while cycling.

Nah, I'll stick to Morbid Angel. :eek:

ok, ok, it's Blink 182's singer's side project, good stuff, and yes it probably would lcash with your AC/DC. I rode to some Evergreen Terrace and Dead to Fall yesterday, it's like 180 from Angels and Airwaves, but man it just puts me in such a good mood lsitening to A&A

I dont ride so i can listen to music.

Blazinall91 05-26-06 11:04 AM

it's not about riding to listen to music it's about adding something to your ride, if you don't need to, more power to you. but, music puts me in a zone, I find, going down singletrack with trees flying by and some good music in my ear i find it more enjoyable.

For singletrack or some bikepaths listening to music would be great. I used to jam to tunes when I raced motorcycles off-road. Good music can put you in the mood for a good workout or practice.

But on the road I prefer to be able to hear cagers approaching. Attentive listening has save my butt a few times.

i can see on the road that could be bad, but yeah man, in some singletrack pushing it, it's so nice

+1 I can even hear how well tires are inflated. I freaked the last time a lady in front of me in a pace line started laughing and talking to herself. Her helmet and straps had hidden the earbuds and wires.
