I bicycle, rain or shine, to work every day. In the wet, I clip on a set of race fenders, and Bob’s your uncle!
. . .“Here’s my number,” he said, handing us both a ticket.
Bob, you’re hilarious! Do you do birthday parties? But back to biz - yeah, it’s great riding to work. I feel really energized & alive on the days I ride in! (I ride most days but draw the line on snow/ice. . .I don’t have the sag van/safety crew!) Ride-to-work makes the work day go a lot better. . .and you get to look forward to the ride home all day = awsome!
As for buds, I use these: http://www.koss.com/koss/kossweb.nsf/p?OpenForm&pc^sc^KSC75 I got them from Amazon last year for about $15/free ship. They sound great, reduce the wind noise without any reduction in ambient sound (that I can detect.) Plus, I look like an absolute dork wearing them (nerd? geek? all of the above?) Hey, before you count them out, check 'em out on the headphone site Calkid referenced a few posts back. That’s actually where I first found them.
Thanks for the suggestions on armbands - Calkid, Miikerman, PromPlanet (and whoa, the girl on the DLO product page is seriously cute!) But I’m hoping the clip’s spring is strong enough it will stay in place on the sleeve of my riding jersey without resorting to an armband. We shall see. But PromisedPlanet has me thinking about abandoning the sleeve & just clipping on the top of my helmet. (Picture that with my goofy outerspace earphones and. . .anybody remember the robot maid from the Jetsons? . . .yep, that’s the look.)
Good to see you were all so productive today!
