Yesterday when I was cycling home I was a fitness goddess. Today I had steam coming out of my ears because as I was cycling uphill and at little more than walking pace, a woman called out to tell me I should be wearing a helmet. Aside from the fact that I was wearing a helmet, it’s really none of her business. I didn’t shout out telling her to lose weight – “it’s a health risk to be overweight, didn’t you know?”
I’ve written about helmets on my blog several times and can’t really be bothered doing it again. But I have been meaning to post a series of Tweets which were posted by @modacitylife after a recent trip to the Netherlands. The Netherlands is the safest country in the world to be a cyclist and yet practically no-one wears a helmet.
