Having had quite a nasty bike accident recently, which has contributed to my rather sporadic blogging, it’s only in looking back on it with two months clear to realise that my helmet did save my life. My head still took a bit of a battering, and I must say that whilst skidding on tarmac on your face is a rather extreme form of exfoliation it does have its downsides. But if I hadn’t been wearing my helmet it would have been rather a lot worse.
I still see plenty of cyclists out and about without a helmet on, and I do sometimes feel like tapping them on the back and saying ‘lady, see this scar on my face – please wear a helmet’. I know a little lid on your head may not be the coolest thing in town, but a helmet is a phenomenal piece of design if you think about it. It’s lightweight, it’s cheap and accessible to all, and it may save your life.
Here are some of my favourites, wear with pride.
Helmet from Bern
Helmet from Ruthys Rides
Custom helmet from Atelier Ruby
Gold helmet from Bobbin Bicycles at Cycle Chic
Or you could while away a few hours visiting this lovely blog on a rainy weekend Velo City Girl.
Happy Monday,hope you have a great day, I’ll be up and out only bike early doors, although I will be topped off by my racing helmet instead of one of those lovelies (a Garneau Sapphire, no it doesn’t look cool, but it does work – I kindly experimented with it for you).
