Since the beginning of May, your editor’s preferred mode of transportation has been his bike, and he has since put over 300 miles on the pavement. There was, however, something missing…music. He did not want to block out any outside noise with headphones as that is dangerous, but he wanted the same commuting experience he had when listening to music in his car. The solution was a Bluetooth speaker clipped to his backpack during commutes. Enter the game changer.
If you’ve read our post, Bumpin’ Pool Party? We’ve Got the Goods!, you already know what some of the best Bluetooth speakers are. Now we’d like to get a little more specific and tell you our picks for the best speakers to rock out with during your bike commute. All speakers are water resistant, perfect for rainy days and can be purchased online in the U.S. with your US Unlocked Card.
Add a Carabiner, and you’re good to go
Some of the following speakers come equipped with a rope or string that can be used so that it won’t fall while you’re holding it. Well, using that same string, you can use a carabiner to clip it to your backpack. Thus, allowing the speaker to dangle safely while you cruise (or zoom) down the road. The JBL Flip 4 (on the left) costs $99.95, and the UE Wonderboom (on the right) costs $79.
Ready out the box
Some speakers are designed with the traveler in mind. These have built-in clips or bungee cords that you can use to attach to your bike or backpack. You can find the UE Roll 2 (on the left) for as low as $68.82 and the JBL Clip 2 (on the right) as low as $47 on Amazon.
