Tweed Run NovC 2011 (25)

This picture is my most popular following being taken up by the Cycling Embassy of Great Britain www.cycling-embassy.org.uk/

The woman in it is one of the Vintage Mafia www.thevintagemafia.com/2011/11/15/rugby-london-tweed-run... they always look good on the Tweed Runs.

The article the picture featured in was about the compulsory cycle helmet wearing as proposed to be taken up by the Woman Institute. www.cycling-embassy.org.uk/news/2011/12/22/reject-calls-m...

As someone who cycles 15 odd miles every day on London Streets I am totally opposed to compulsory cycle helmet wearing. If people want to make themselves feel safer by wearing them that is up to them but I get a little weary of non cyclists asking me tritely 'do you wear a helmet?'. The implication being that for my safety I should however I find this view profoundly unscientific and illogical my position is set out very well on this site www.cyclehelmets.org/0.html also by MMikael Colville-Andersen here youtu.be/jS9UhHf7GsQ The full version is here youtu.be/07o-TASvIxY which also deals with our cities and the profound damage which motor vehicles do to them.
