On your own head be it

A good friend of mine yesterday passed on a link to an article that appeared online on The Guardian’s website on Monday. In this article by Stuart Jeffries, weighs up the evidence of whether cyclists should wear helmets or not.

“Most safety experts say they offer valuable protection; but a few believe they make accidents more likely. In Paris, where cycling is suddenly hugely popular, riders seem more interested in preserving their hairdos than in questions of life and death.”

If you have some time available today, I would suggest going to The Guardian’s website and reading through the article.  Now the publishing house is also making full use of it’s blogging sites and also offers readers the opportunity to provide their comments on thoughts on his article. Unfortunately you have to register with them in order to do this. So, if you’re up to it, let me know your thoughts and comments on what he has to say.
