What if you flip the equation? Riding while working? I did alot of that during covid summer last year. Took many help calls while riding down the trail. People would ask me what's all that racket?As for working while riding, WTF? Hell to the f*ck no.
Not gonna work while riding anywhere interesting where I live. Road or mtb. Cellular reception isn't good enough outside of town.What if you flip the equation? Riding while working?

I would laugh and tell them I'm on my mountain bike on the mountain.
I'm lucky to have the Redstone Arsenal trails less than a mile from my office.
I get it.I guess what I'm saying, I'm at work, on the clock, just sitting at my desk, while everyone else is tele-working. Most people will call my cell if I don't answer my desk phone.
I have my bike on the rack, and mountain trails less than a mile away.
Yeah, I'm gonna go riding. "on the clock". Works for me.
This is what I do also, and your GPS still works in airplane mode. If you want to see your screen, the mounts are the way to go. I tried facing the screen away from my thigh but I never liked the idea of the additional risk to the screen. A bonus is that with WiFi turned off it's not constantly looking for a network so it extends battery life a tiny bit.I put my phone in “airplane” mode while I ride.
NO ONE SUGGESTED THIS YET:So I usually carry my iPhone in a pocket in the back of my jersey. When it starts getting sweaty it seems to try and trigger opening the phone. Which then asks for a face id or password unlock. Which of course doesn't happen (its in my pocket). After a number of these cycles the phone just locks up. I have also had the phone call my emergency contact randomly or the siri function not work properly because the phone is trying to unlock.
So how do I get this phone to stay locked when the screen is being touched BUT still be able to unlock it from time to time on the ride via a different method? View attachment 1958259
