Drivers give helmeted cyclists less room�|�Oddly Enough�|�

Worrying findings – especially as I’m about to start a cross-London bicycle commute in October…

I’ve always been skeptical of a helmet’s value in a crash – I remember some earlier designs increased the risk of twisting your neck in a fall – but have worn one on the basis that some additional protection is always welcome and so that my visibility in traffic is increased: a bright white helmet stands out more than my head (although the hair’s getting whiter by the month…).

Maybe the blond wig is the way to go though… Worrying!
