Mixing music with the ride

“I’m just listening to The Roots.”

Photographer’s notes: I know there is a school of thought that says cyclists should not wear. That they cannot hear cars. I am not of that school.

Music is so diverse, to think every piece is deafening is a bit rich. Then there are debates about over the ear versus in the ear devices.

I ride in-the-ear plugs and I adore them. I can hear everything, can tell where cars are, always hear sirens.

So, nope, listening to music is just part of riding a bike. Like everything, if it is taken to an extreme, there are issues.

Meanwhile, enjoy The Roots, “What TheyDo” here…
