A little rant about headphones, and when not to wear them



 I can relate to listening to music gets you motivated and the time go by faster I guess. 
I just don’t get it.  Why would you risk your safety by wearing earphones while riding a bike in traffic or with other cyclists?  This may seem like a rant and I guess it is.  It could be compared to riding with with one eye shut.  It’s just dumb.  If you have an important phone call your waiting for and that is why you are wearing a headset, then I suggest you don’t ride and wait for the call to come in. 
I often wears earphones while swimming and indoor cycling on a trainer.  I even wear them running, while keeping the sound down in order to hear my surroundings.
