Hi Richard and the Group

Your interesting post has prompted me air something that's been on my

Last Sunday I took part in a 60 mile sponsored charity bicycle ride.
My huffin and puffin and other expletives (along with those of some
4000 other participants) precluded enjoying the sound and sights of
nature.  However, my solitary training rides along quiet country roads
have been a delight.  In particular I have been surprised by the
amount and variaty of birdsong - probably mostly alarm calls?

I wonder if any member of this group has tried recording whilst bicycling?

I assume some form of cardioid mic is needed to suppress the noises of
the bicycle and the rider.

I am tempted to set up a Rode NT4 (with appropriate wind shield) and
use my minidisc and see just what I can catch.

The result could be interesting. Maybe something more for the members
of the Phonography Group.
