I don't. I'd rather stay alive, thank you. I want to hear the
cagers approaching from the rear, the birds, the dog that's going
to run out and start chasing me, the surf, the beavers splashing
in the pond as they try to dam the culvert and flood the road...

Anyone cycling with headphones on is asking for trouble.


In most states, including my NY, it is illegal to bicycle (or drive) with
two earphones. One is okay, but not two.

Is this true - "most" states? It isn't true in mine as far as I can
tell from a quick look at the motorvehicle regs.

Hi Folks,

So, what music do people listen to while cycling? I was
just listening to four Rossini overtures yesterday, William Tell,
The Silken Ladder, The Thieving Magpie and The Barber of Seville
and I thought I'd start this thread. I also like the last Dylan
album and JJ Cale/Eric Clapton latest as well. Anybody else?



Whatever's going on in my head, probably something classical. Don't use
radio or iPod while riding, but listen to XM much of the rest of the time.

It's against the law. Being a libertarian idiot doesn't make you above
the law, just an idiot.

You didn't tell us what state you are in.

Yeah--same filter that ignores the clear law in the Tennessee driver's
manual which is downloadable via PDF and clearly states that you
should not wear phones.

Joseph Crowe is a clown that posts to the local group--always with a
libertarian slant to serve his holier than thou ego. It's not about
politics, he's just better than you. **** public safety--if he wants
to listen to Mahler, he wants to listen to Mahler.
