comment How to cope with boredom whilst cycle touring?
@Unsliced Yes, it was a pointed safety comment but one that doubles to find out what sort of isolation the OP is putting themselves in. If you're going to ride to music, you might as well be on a trainer. I ride because I want to be experiencing the outdoors. Perhaps neither you or the OP are as fickle as me but I really find SQUIRREL!

comment Locking your bike in public areas
This whole thread and that video make me never want to let go of my bike ever again. Screw locking it up, I'm strapping it to my backpack!
