Wanted - your photos!

Postby StopHeadway » 8 Feb 2011, 4:53pm

So, there's a secret project in the works around a very topical campaign issue which shall remain nameless.

It would be very helpful to be able to illustrate the website with photographs of people enjoying cycling around - without beating around the bush - bareheaded.

Naturally there's an endless supply on Google image search but I want to keep this strictly above-board, which means getting permission for each image used (there will be a credit given).

Please, if you have anything you think might be appropriate (especially if it's on flickr or something easy to access) and you wouldn't mind it being used to reinforce the point that people can sometimes ride their bike in normal clothes without immediately dying - do let me know. Either by reply or PM, whatever works for you!

I'd be especially interested in kids who look like they're having a good time, those more advanced in years, (basically anything that demonstrates a cross-section of society would be a big win).

Thanks!

Does it matter if they are on road or off road?

No, I meant families out enjoying the countryside in our forests etc.

The last one is great - this is just the sort of thing :)

It doesn't matter where they are taken really - the NI law does not apply merely to the road. You're looking at a cool £250 in fine revenue from the pics above, which is about the going rate for killing someone in your car (providing you have some excuse, like defective eyesight or "new car smell"...)
