I like riding my bike and I like listening to music, but have never really felt comfortable combining the two. I rely on my ears as well as my eyes to stay aware of my surroundings and cranking up my iPod while biking just doesn't seem like a good idea.
The new Bike to Beach Bicycle Speaker for iPod® (iH8B), made by iHome is a creative solution to this musical dilemma.
Here's how it works. You place your iPod in the impact resistant, polycarbonate case and mount it to the lower crossbar of your bike. It has little speakers on the ends of it so you don't even need to wear headphones - that way you can hear your music and also hear what's going on around you. Then you mount the wireless remote control to your handlebars. Now you can easily skip past Gwen Stephani's "Hollaback Girl" when you're really in the mood for Kelly Clarkson's Never Again without having to futz with your iPod. Plus it's water and impact resistant - two very necessary features when it comes to your bike.
These speakers for your bike only cost $99, but they're not quite ready to be shipped yet. You can order one straight from iHome though, and be the first on your bike path to have one.
