Music and biking don’t mix

I saw something on TV this weekend about how fashionable the iPod is, and they flashed a picture of Dubya in full on biking regale, mentioning that, in the photo, the iPod’s telltale white earbud wires were visible. Actually, a picture can be found here.

Apparently Bush doesn’t heed the DOT’s advice that you shouldn’t wear headphones while biking.

I wonder if it has anything to do with his apparent clumsiness with regards to his bicycle.

To be fair, a lot of people are that stupid… just googling for “bush ipod bike” returned a lot of references to people thinking that it, or the various derivatives would be perfect for a bike ride.

Tangentially aside, I bought an mp3 player this weekend. It wasn’t an ipod, however — I got an iRiver IFP-899.
