Headphones & Bicycles, A Love Story

Posted by Noah Dunham on Fri, Jul 23, 2010 at 2:43 PM

Dudes dudes! Don't look at me like that. I know, I know, I've heard it a thousand times, (mostly from my nun of a mother), I SHOULDN'T listen to music through headphones while on my bicycle. It's not safe. It's probably against the law. It can cause me to become a really reckless cyclist, especially when this band comes up on shuffle. And it generally pisses people off.

BUT...

It is really fucking enjoyable!!! And when I'm on a long ass bike ride, like I'm talking Sellwood all the way back to NoPo, sometimes wearing my headphones saves my fucking life. Drivers can blast music on their stereos inside their cars that have sound proof windows and no one cares. What's the dif?

Help me out Blogtownies, weigh in and let me know if I'm being an a-hole, or if riding with the headphones on is a-ok.
