The integrity of the elctronics of the iPod with cycling(6 posts)

The integrity of the elctronics of the iPod with cyclingcyclingforhealth

I find listening to my iPod is quite enjoyable when I ride. I was wondering if the jarring and the shock that it experiences on the bike would be hard on the iPod.

I did not ride today. I am taking a rest day.

Also I have been sincere with all of you. The only thing I seek is health. I do not seek to trick anyone on this board. My two little twins are the most important people in this world to me. I want to be healthy to watch them grow up. If that isn't a good enough reason to start riding, and being a part of the cycling community of this board, then I will find somewhere else to take my questions. I have been made fun of most of my life because of my weight problem. I do not need to be made fun of on this board. I need positive reinforcement.

Yes it is true that I can't fit into a Camelback, and yes it is true that you can't wear one with a recumbent. Look at my bike, and you can see that you can strap it on the back of the back support of the seat. That is how I use my Camelback.
Do you choose to wear a helmet?Poseur

Please, for your safety, and your children's security, please wear a helmet and proper eye protection. I'd hate to think of you hurt or worse, Those sweet twins would grow up with another father after their mother immediately marries the UPS man, following your funeral.

Anyways, riding without one isn't cool. Even Fonzie wore a helmet, well most of the time, but that was like in the fifties.
This is a good combo deal here. I think the helmet matches your sunny and cheerful disposition.

ps: You might want to install a rearview mirror. Just steal one off of a school bus. Those things can see around anything!

I have a helmet and it is called a specialized. It cost about $40. I got it with the bike and camelback and computer. I am reconsidering the Ipod, now. Music motivates me though. Rear view mirror? On a bicycle? very funny mister.

Rear-view mirrors, that is. Some attatch to the helmet, others to your sunglasses.
music is motivating, but headphones will kill you nmcollinsc
