    Please – please – wear a helmet!

    @Alice Whether or not to wear a helmet is a matter of personal choice for every cyclist and I think it is never a good idea to urge others to wear or not to wear a helmet.

    The prevailing view in London these days seems to be that in the kind of relaxed leisure riding depicted in this film, a helmet is very much optional. For racing or more high risk riding like mountain biking, a helmet seems wise.

    As the cyclists of Amsterdam, Berlin and Copenhagen show, there’s really no need once there are enough cyclists on the roads.

    Alice, this website is no place for promoters of helmet compulsion to spread their propaganda. Go away please

    Isn’t it sad that the first thing anyone can think to say about this film is something negative!

    Cheers for posting it on here Jack – it’s beautifully shot & I really enjoyed the line,

    “In the same way that you end up daydreaming and you don’t notice the time, it happens on the bike as well…”

    How true is that? :>D
