Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. What do you do to make a difference?

I love music, I sing and whistle a lot when cycling, but I rarely play music otherwise (except just now, cooking, playing Billy Joel, Sibelius, ceilidh music)

Used to listen to music on long drives, but I do not travel so much now, and I would not play music when cycling

Only listening to music seems too little, listening to music while doing something else seems disrespectful

Quite often I go to concerts in churches or elsewhere, find my thoughts wandering a bit
When/where is the best time/place to hear music?
Entertainer, kidult, curmudgeon
Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott
We love safety cameras, we love life

Totday, The Sentinel by Pallas. Very much of its time, but still rather good.

I played in 4 concerts of Händels Messiah this past weekend, so I have to counter that with some metal today. Currently listening to Metallica. :mrgreen:

Union Jack Radio.
https://www.unionjack.co.uk

Our new puppy Sailor likes it!
"Little by Little" Oasis on at the moment.

Excellent mix of music interspersed with comedy sketch snippets .............. Don't tell him, Pike! and Trigger's broom earlier this morning, not to mention Basil Fawlty whacking his car with a branch, or Alice Tinker's jokes. :lol:

Tried to tune in today but no sound. Google tells me it's DAB + so I can't receive it on my DAB :(
I feel short changed. Should I ask for my TV licence fee back. :(
