Music to cycle by

I know I can’t be the only “mother’s worst nightmare” cyclist who occasionally listens to music while commuting. For those worried about my safety, let me assure you that the music is low (though my singing, often, is not) and doesn’t drown out traffic any more than the wind noise does—I also frequently take advantage of the iPhone external speaker, to the chagrin of passers-by. Here are a few of the more recent songs that have been in heavy rotation during my rides this spring.

Monday morning revver-uppers

Songs for overcast days or the mulling over the day’s events on the ride home

When I want to remember I’m in Nashville

Like everyone else in America, I am also wearing out the Adele record. Is there a song you can’t stop listening to? Share in the comments!

Adele Rides a Bike

While checking Adele’s site looking for the presale date for her June show at the Ryman (Wednesday!), I came across this picture of her on a new bike. Her post was enthusiastic about the purchase, saying she loves the “bring bring” bell—rumor has it she plans to buy a house in Amsterdam, so it’s a good thing she’s prepping for the cycling lifestyle. The bike looks vaguely Oma-esque—anyone know what it is?

p.s. if you haven’t heard the first single from Adele’s new album yet, here it is. Is it too selfish to hope men keep doing her wrong when the results are awesome breakup songs like this one?
