Hi guys. My bike commute is me time. It is the only (except sleeping) garenteed time a day all week that I get to be by myself and stop thinking about work and school. So I like listening to music while I ride. I got used to music and riding when I started riding a moped a few years back, that 2 stroke was too loud to hear anythibg else ouside my helmet lol! I keep it turned down pretty low on roads so I can hear cars. But I turn it up at the bike paths and small neighborhoods. But even then I have it low enough that i can hear people say "youre welcome" After I say "im on your left..thanks!" When I pass.
Anyone else like listening while they ride? I know most people probably think its reckless, but i feel very confident with or without my tunes. Im concidering sewing speakers into my back pack because it seems a bit more convenient.
