Just about every morning I ride my bike to the train station so I'm constantly looking for blogs or pictures that fuse biking and fashion. The photos of girls with skirts streaming behind them as they ride, or paused at a corner waiting for the traffic light to change while wearing high heels are my inspiration. However, I do notice a sad lack of head-wear, specifically, helmets. As an early Christmas gift Rich bought me a Nutcase helmet because we both like my brains inside my head, rather than on the road. The helmet is lightweight, can be adjusted to fit your head and won't slide around once its been set. It has a magnetic clasp that's easy to open and close with one hand, but once its on the strap rests in a comfortable place under your chin. It is also made of a reflective material to enhance visibility on the road and if you check out the website, comes in about 30 or so different color options.
Helmets are fashionable is my new road mantra. I'm guilty of not wearing a helmet and have a multitude of excuses why I didn't. I promise, it will not mess up your hair THAT badly and it doesn't make you look stupid. It looks smart (in both the sense of intelligence and looking sharp).
From now on, I promise to wear my helmet! Will you promise to get one and wear it?
