    Whilst out walking around Pitsford Reservoir earlier today i couldnt believe how many families were cycling around which is nice to see .

    But the thing that amazes me is ok its great to see the kids wearing helmets but very few adults wearing them

    If you're going to do that, you really should wear a helmet.

    I think Biggs raises a fair point. If youre so convinced of the safety benefits, then why make sprig wear one but not yourself? Could it be that maybe they don't really believe...?

    As I told my kids today, if you can't set a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    As Drago says, it is a fair point but unfortunately it is also one for the helmet debate thread so I'm bringing this to a close while it's still good natured.
