If you listen to anything while riding, what is it?

I usually listen to prog rock/metal, IDM/jungle, and math rock on my free time, but despite not usually listening to anything while riding, whenever I do, I just listen to more simpler and easy going music like late-90's/early 2000s alt rock, and classic/old rap.

I'm just looking for more stuff to add to my playlist for whenever I wanna chill out riding or practising. All suggestions and tastes are welcome and appreciated!

UK rap works well for me for some reason. Four Owls, Stig of the dump, Split prophets etc.

Upvoted for Gaslight Anthem.

Also, you totally just reminded me about the subways, used to love them but haven't heard them for years!

I usually ride without music. I'm usually in a parking lot so I need to be able to hear what's going on around me. But sometimes I'll have my phone in my pocket playing music out the speakers if I'm just out playing around, not really working on anything.

Depends on mood mostly. But my top bands to ride to are:

Jimakata
Dirty Heads
Tommy Cash
The Hatters
Little Big

Some good stuff on that list.

I really don’t listen to anything unless I am driving or working out (which is often). But it depends on what I plan to ride if I do listen to something. Dirt, just a flow session is mainly just stuff like 311, NIN a little light hip hop. Street, Five Finger Death Punch, DMX, Kid Rock, Metallica. Park, mostly hip hop and rap and most I have memorized so it kinda flows well with what I am doing. If I go race it’s all rap and metal. Got to get the adrenaline going

I have never listened to anything whilst riding. I think I will give it a try soon. Gonna pick up some ear buds and setup my iTunes account.

First thing im going to download is Minor Threat’s complete Discography!! Then probably some Clint Black lol

The list is awesome, thanks! And in reply to the quote; I love NIN! Haven't listened to them in a while and you just made me remember! I'll sure be adding that to my playlist!

No problem, jehst and Chester p are the forefathers of UK hiphop. That track is nearly 20 years old!

My sessions are that quick, that usually I just listen to my cassette clicking away. But if I do get the chance to have a proper session, I'll stick a Road Fools playlist on.

But I find it off putting using head phones when I'm airing stuff, it's weird.

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

I listen to the sounds of whatever is around me. AKA no tunes. I like to be aware of where I am.

Also helps me determine if my bike is gonna snap off.

Either punk, hiphop (mostly modern lyricist rather the mubble rap stuff but sometimes some old school stuff like Wu Tang, Ghetto Boys, Ice Cube, etc) or reggae depending on how I feel.

My tires, pegs and nearby traffic, mostly. You should try it!

Did a quick check, actually quite nice more on the "traditional" side of reggae, you hear that less nowadays

Just downloaded Alabama Shakes “always alright”
Add Bob Dylan's Subterraian homesick blues.
And The Guru “golden brown”





Can’t wait to ride to these two songs on repeat^

My loud hub, the noise that 90 PSI makes, and my thoughts that keep saying I suck.
