I like singing ozzy osbourne/black sabbath - War Pigs when I go for a ride, but others probably dont appreciate it since I since really crappy-like. lol

Some punk/metal stuff like billy talent or rise against might be good, I dunno.. I usually dont bring music to ride, thats what sitting at my computer is for.

Bad move. Can be dangerous in some cases.

Upbeat stuff like Out of Control by Hoobastank. Of course I only listen when I'm on the ground, a hell of a long way away from any 50ft cliffs that send you plowing straight into trees.

I don't listen WHILE I ride. But I most definately listen before hand to get pumped up. Generally anything fast with good rythm and beat. Gwar for example doesn't do it for me, but GnR can if I am in the mood for memories of my childhood.

The new Beck, "Guero", is excellent riding music.

I listen while I ride, but I never use closed type headphones. With an open design you can still hear what's happening around you reasonably well...as long as the volume isn't too loud.

I have my iPod dialed in with a "Riding" Playlist, that mainly contains my favorite punk rock bands. Less Than Jake, Op Ivy, MU330, Bad Religion, Rancid, Ten Foot Pole, oh and also Pantera, and Some music geek tunes, from the likes of Greg Howe, Dennis Chambers, Older Brecker Brothers, and there are more I am sure.

I don't listen to anything except the wind blowing while I ride, but if I did, it would definitely be Loudness. Nothing like anglophonic Japanese 80s hair metal to pump you up. Rock on, dudes!

Heh... I love music.

Especially the hardcore stuff to get me pumped. But listening to my iPOD and riding my bike at the same time..... Nope, not gonna happen. Had to get a new iPOD because of doing that. Thank god I had warranty..

Now, I just resort to listening to hard core stuff before I ride.

1. System of A Down
2. Static-X
3. Rage Against the Machine
4. Chevelle
5. 3rd Strike
6. The Beastie Boys
7. Breaking Benjamin
8. Deftones
9. Disturbed
10. Godsmack

..... And there's a bunch more, just not going to name them all.

I find that listening to The Mars Volta really gets me going, not pumped or anything just gets me going.
Its very fast and technical. I find that whenver i head it now it reminds me of biking.

It always strikes me how few mountain bikers/skate boarders/bmxers/surfers/extreme sporters like rap.

Always.

Pink floyd is one of those bands where it's best to really listen, not have as background noise. At least in my opinion.

I find i have more of a drive to ride with music, once again open style headphones and not an outrageous level of volume, and it makes a good way to supplement my ride, now on the other hand, i don't listen to music while riding til i'm comfortable with the trail or area.

I would listen to my Mp3 player while riding on long rides that are NOT DH or XC (need full concentration ). But music is great for keeping momentum going, pumping you up, and making the ride more enjoyable.

TRANCE alll da waaaayyyyyyyy

Midro only mixes the sounds! Although he selects good songs to mix . Although Ministry Of Sound flicked him from the latest Hard NRg (V7).

Fast paced music is goooood .

Agreed.
The only times I listen to music while on a bike are as follows
  1. On the trainer
  2. In traffic when someone rolls up next to me in a car with a sound system worth more than the actual car it's in
  3. Whenever there's a concert in the park as I'm riding past
Beyond that I listen to the music in my head, or the sounds of the trail.

Definatley. The sounds of the trails....ahhh. I have a good old chat with them each time i ride past. Some are friendly, but the old pine tree is usually a stuck up a - hole and trys to fall down infront of me. The dirt however, is nice to me and usually builds it self up before I ride over it. The dirt is Rally bread so it knows what its doing .

You would litterly have to be crazy listening to music while riding DH / XC. But if your just into cruising around, go for it. I used to, but I dont 'cruise' any more .

I used to listen to music all the time when I would ride. XC, DH, what ever. If I was out on a multi use trail I would keep one speaker out of an ear so I could here if anyone was coming. When I raced (dh) I would always have the headphones on and the music cranked up. It helps me to relax while on the course and I usually set the songs up so certain parts of the song will coencide with certain stunts on the course. I would also use a song that would end just shy of the best times down the hill and try and finish before the song. Sort of racing the music rather then the time

As for my choice of music, some good old Metalica, Zombie or Ministry.
