Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

If you’re strong enough you can do that sort of thing.

Not that I would have any experience getting away with that sort of thing.

Playing music through a speaker is incredibly rude.

Years ago when I did some night mtb rides there was a very strong guy who had a cassette player on his bars and he carried a selection of mellow jazz and acoustic guitar. He had a battery from a Honda Gold Wing mounted in the front triangle and 2 motorcycle headlights. We mostly stayed on fire roads and I liked following him because he lit up the whole road, plus, he just cruised.

"new" bike arrived. unboxed. dry rotted tyres replaced. assembled. test ridden. On the to-do list for it. replace the abomination of a saddle, get a battery for the shifter, lube the headset bearings. oh and fix the rear mudguard line.

It's the same with boats. Every ski boat thinks the whole population enjoys their music. Even when there are 20 different ones all playing different music at full volume.

Wouldn't understand in that generally there's no one who's going to hear it for more than a few seconds . . .
