I just found this blog, and I like anything pro-bicycles. However, it seems that helmets are never chic. Pity, because I like to be safe. :|

It's not that they're not chic - it's just that a very small percentage of the population wears them in Copenhagen. Your average everyday Copenhagener isn't going to wear one. The bike infrastructure is good so there's little worry about cars which is where most of the "danger" in cycling comes from. Cycling isn't inherently dangerous.

Beautiful moment. Really starting to get a feel for the change in seasons there. Everyone is looking ever-so-slightly more bundled up (except for the mannequin, who is sure to come down with a nasty cold).

I love this blog!
My first post Ed Milliband blogging discovery.
Wonderful, bikes and beauty, the world just got a little bit better.
Thank you.

And nobody noticed, across the street, what I THINK must be a mannequin... and if I am wrong, a particularly brave woman given that the cyclist seems to find it cold enough for leggings, a jacket and a warm cap.

For Katie-

It's not that helmets are really any more necessary for cycling than they are for walking near traffic or on a slippery surface, or for climbing stairs. And they do not automatically ensure safety in case of a collision. Much has been said about this, and the weight of the evidence is on the side of helmet skeptics.

I'm not sure if the woman in this photograph would be too impressed by the first comment in this string. What do you reckon?

you're right, Ian. Thanks. Duly deleted.

Regarding helmets: The Bicycle Helmet Research Foundation, among other orgs, will help you out, Katie.
