Cyclone offers cycling soundtrack

bicycle speaker

Cycling can be better with music, but earphones make it harder to hear the traffic around you on the road. The Cyclone is a shock-proof speaker designed to fit inside a water bottle cage.

A rechargeable battery provides up to six hours of continuous music playback and its Bluetooth connectivity works at a distance of up to 10 metres from your smartphone or other device.

The splash-proof Cyclone has an output of 2x5W and weighs 433g.

Ethical cycle insurance

Check your small print for so-called ‘new-for-old’ replacement – many insurers use the term, but if your bicycle is more than a few years old, they devalue it severely. This means you are left out of pocket when you come to replace it.

With ETA cycle insurance, however old the bike, if it’s stolen you get enough to buy a new model. Furthermore, every cycle insurance policy you buy from us helps support the work of the ETA Trust, our charity campaigning for a cleaner, safer transport future. No wonder The Good Shopping Guide judges us to be Britain’s most ethical insurance company.

    It’s got to be Queen’s Bicycle Race!

    “I want to ride my bicycle, bicycle, bicycle
    I want to ride my bicycle
    I want to ride my bike
    I want to ride my bicycle
    I want to ride it where I like”

    I would play Kraftwerk’s Tour de France: Still sounds good after all these years and so appropriate for a cycling nut like me.

    Because it’s the wonderful feeling I get when I cycle:-

    “I Want to Break Free” by Queen.

    I would love it to be “Speed King” by Deep Purple, but “Slow Bicycle” by Múm would be more appropriate! 🙂

    Music accompanies me on every ride – sometimes just in my imagination or from whatever sound system I have with me be it mobile phone or voice recorder – I don’t use earphones, just the device’s
    own speaker, so having a Bluetooth speaker to playback with will turn my musical journeys into a roving soundscape as well as landscape.

    I am afraid that I do not like the idea. I would only want to win one to prevent its use! (Sorry to be such a party pooper.) I love music, classic and jazz mainly, but not much of the popular stuff. I would generally prefer not to hear other peoples’ choice of noise (such as rap emitting from the open windows of a BMW at about 150 decibels). I listen to good music quietly inside my car (windows closed!), but would never listen while cycling or running.

    Sounds Fantastic, It would have to Pink Floyd or Dire Straits, or maybe Dido, would depend on the journey and the mood.

    As I cycle in and out of central London each day I would play “Cross Town Traffic” by Hendrix and possibly “My White Bicycle” by Nazereth.

    Heard recently that 1 million people in the UK commute by bicycle, so “9 Million Bicycles” by Katie Melua sounds like a decent target!!

    I would play a message to all the impatient, rude drivers who scream past me too close:

    Ella Fitzgerald’s – Please Be Kind

    I’d use it as an extra device to warn pedestrians of my presence while on the cycle paths, often I encounter people who think it is okay to walk three abreast right across the cycle path and footpath and completely ignore my bell.
    I would have the Gendarme’s siren you so often hear on the Tour de France, currently it’s my ringtone and is very loud!

    This Wheel’s on Fire written by Bob Dylan; Had a fab tail wind on my ride in to work this morning, so feeling pretty chuffed!!

    Great sound system for the bike.
    Has the advantage of you being able to hear other road users and for pedestrians to hear you coming.
