Re: Big Bike revival ... yet more helmet normalising!

Re insistance of LA for helmets, why aren't CUK/Sustrans putting pressure on LAs to not enforce these matters and make sure that the reality of the failures/weakneses of helmets be put out as a matter of course. I've posted twice on these boards where I have heard direct from the mouths of LA offic...

When appropriate and time will allow, I'll explain to those who ask why I choose not to wear one. No amount of evidence will counter the anecdotes of those who know...

Re: Big Bike revival ... yet more helmet normalising!

The vast majority of us over the age of 40 would have cycled sans helmet for a good long while, who shifted the thinking aside from BC? BBC, I'm particularly thinkng of the way That's Life derided CTC over their position, the marketing departments of helmet manufacturers who are only concerned with...

Re: Cycle Paths

Is this not all getting a bit Grand Old Duke of York?

Re: How did this happen?

Little wonder it's cross with you and demanding attention :wink: .
