Today, I was riding in some shitty conditions. It was cold so my body was tensing up, and becuase of the early start (mixed with bordom) I was starting to feel drowsy. There wasnt anywhere I could pull over safely. So I started to sing (scream?) metal tracks... only one I could remember was Psyco - System of a Down, but its really good, a stack of yelling at the start It always wakes me up. My theory is it makes you bring more oxygen into your brain with the deep breaths you take, and of course I usually dance round a bit on the bike when im singing too which helps relive the tension. Also, for me, having something else to think about (simple enough that you can still concerntrate on the road) relieves the bordom. Has anyone else found that singing helps while riding? For what reasons? On long rides I usually think about stuff, everything and anything. The quiet helps me resolve some issues (hence why I like long rides so much). But if Im getting bored or especially tense, singing helps alot. What do you do on long trips?
