Music for cycling
Wave goodbye to wobbly fumbling to keep your balance on a bike as you try to change tunes on the iPod nano that’s in your pocket or on an armband.
The new iBikeMount, (£19.99) from the iPod accessories experts at iWorld, sits securely on your bicycle's handlebars within easy reach and view.
The iBikeMount is also great for exercise bikes, pushchairs and prams – in fact anything with a handlebar!
• Fits 1Gb, 2Gb and 4Gb iPod nanos
• Easily attaches to a variety of handlebar sizes – from 22mm to 26mm
• Quick and easy to attach and remove, no tools required
• Lightweight, just 1.4 ounces / 40 grams
• Flat black colour matches black or white iPod nano
Many people already listen to music whilst cycling and the iBikeMount will serve to make this pastime safer as managing your tunes is now easier than ever before.
However, cyclists should always remember to stay aware of their surroundings at all times.
It’s a good idea to keep the volume down, perhaps even muted, in areas with heavier traffic. Enjoy the music - just listen responsibly.
Choose the right headphones
HeadphoneWorld, the world's largest headphone store, recommends choosing some outer ear pad style headphones to use with your iPod when cycling.
This ensures that other road users are aware that you are listening to music and can anticipate that you may not hear them.
Check out HeadphoneWorld to see a variety of full size headphones to do the job, including the Altec Lansing AHP512 headphones.
Choose for the entry level price tag, just £13.89, and a great balanced sound. Or try the Sennheiser HD25 Pro headphones at £119.99 for a top of the range option with rotatable earphones to allow for one ear listening when you need your wits about you.
