^ This...all day long. If Fast as a Shark doesn't raise your heart rate you, my friend, are dead.I don't listen to music during rides, but on the rare occasion when I use my wife's stationary recumbent, I have a mix of 80's/German metal for my iPod. Dual guitarists are a trademark of German bands like Accept, Scorpions, and Rammstein, and they play at just the right pace.
Same here. However, I do have a playlist on my iPod I listen to before starting my trip. Some of the songs include Train's Save Me SF. Montrose's Space Station #9 and Take You Higher by Sly and the Family Stone. However, sometimes I find myself whistling Sinatra when I'm on a bike path.I don't listen to music when I ride. I want to be able to hear what's going on around me. General safety rule of mine.
