Discuss: Cycling with Headphones?

Comment on Headlines: Cyclist Hit on Coxwell

I wear one headphone on my right ear and not loud. Music helps to pump me up to bike faster or to enjoy the ride when it’s too boring. I am cautious though, looking over my shoulder all time and listening to cars and even other bike bells is very important. I think completely losing yourself in the music is very dangerous.

There’s a discussion on the post about a cyclist being hit on Coxwell, after he (reportedly) turned in front of a truck while wearing headphones.

Do you wear headphones while cycling?

Did you used to wear headphones while cycling, but decided not to?

Do you say anything to others who wear headphones while cycling?
