    You can get motorcycle helmets with communication CB's inbuilt. There's probably DIY kits out there that you could modify for a bike helmet!

    you could probably put a 70cm/2m ant on your bike somewhere. The spark from the engine might interfere though. What size rig were you hoping to run off it, do you want power from the engine for it?

    I used to bicycle with an SLA 12v/5ah battery in my bottle cage. it powered a 12v headlight. You could power a cb with it for a spell, Good Buddy.
