I’ve started cycling again (after many years) and noticed something I never noticed before: It is hard to hear well with the wind rushing around my ears creating that wind tunnel whoosh. Now, if I turn my head left or right (taking my eyes of the road ahead), my hearing is excellent and whoosh is gone.
Maybe now that I am 38 it is more noticable (maybe with age I am more safety conscsious), but I really find myself turning my head to hear things better.
I don’t know anyone who bikes/cycles, and don’t know of any cycling shops 'round these parts (South Jersey, USA).
Is there a trick or some equipment that can help eliminate the ear ‘whoosh’ when my face is facing forward? Am I missing something? Audio cues are very important when biking.
