Mountain biking with headphones is a touchy subject. I’ll admit I personally love riding with headphones. I’ve been riding with the Jaybird Run True bluetooth headphones and they work really well. I don’t use them every time. If I’m out on a cruiser ride, or riding with some buddies, I’ll leave them at home. But if I’m out on a hard training ride, I love to pop in the ear buds and put on my favorite playlist.
In this video, I share some tips for using earphones on the mountain bike trail. Also, I want to ask you: how do you feel about music on the trails. Be honest: Do you sometimes wear headphones when mountain biking? Or, do you think they should be banned from the trails? Leave me a comment below and let me know what you think.
