What? No GPS? Shocking! ;-)
such a different view compared to the US; riding here w/ a child w/o a helmet is a big no-no (and pretty irresponsible IMO)
I wish the helmet Nazis would give it a rest. This is not a blog about safe riding in the US, Australia, or any other nanny state. Please let us enjoy the wonderful images without criticizing another cultures "safety practices". Yes I'm from the US, yes I wear a helmet most of the time, and yes I do not think that I need to have someone tell me to wear one or not.
way to go bro :)map or GPS pls...
wow. got your panties in a wad a little bit huh? I was just making a comment about the differences of cultures, not 'criticizing' it.I don't really care what you do.they can probably get away with it in Copenhagen because the drivers respect cyclists a bit more than here. but for me, I would never take my child out on the road w/o a helmet, not with all these crazy disrespectful drivers.and thanks for the typical 'nazi' comment; me and my Polish grandparents appreciate it.
Um... now we chill, okay? Thanks.
Bike helmets have a verry limited usecase: aproaching your target the same way like you would if you jump upright to the ceiling.You can even tumble over sideways, and fall into a solid wall, get a blue eye, and the helmet isn't even scratched.If you go faster than 25 km/h, you enter the window in which its usefull, and you leave it again with 35.A motorcycle helmet might protect you in a wide range of possible accidents, a bike helmet doesn't. Its primary purpose is that the blood doesn't splatter all over the place.
My helmet has a disclaimer label which pretty well absolves the manufacturer of any responsibility for my skull. And yet I am legally required to wear it here in Australia for 'safety'. Meanwhile as a parent and a cyclist I am really feeling this picture of the little girl just like my daughter ridng in a seat just like hers, in bare feet and no helmet. LOVE it, and hope one day my kid can do the same.
