  1. Muppet! At least he went out doing what he loved! I have to confess I don’t wear a helmet when I cycle, but I would if on a motor bike…not that I’d ever get on one as I’m too scared!

  2. What a nutter!

    I wonder how many who saw the accident have now changed their minds?

  3. The Queen does not wear a helmet when she rides her horse. I recently sold my motorbike. I wore a helmet, not only because it was a legal requirement, but also because the bike was big enough and fast enough to get me into scrapes. As it happened I did have an accident and broke my leg. Not sure whether I would have damaged my head, though I would probably have had a bad headache. If I could get away without wearing a helmet while riding a much smaller bike, a100 cc scooter for example, I probably would not wear one. On the farm and when I was in Thailand for example, I never wore one. Accidents happen and death and injury occur no matter how careful you are. I prefer a certain amount of risk taking as it adds excitement to life. Judge not, lest ye be judged!

  4. Oops, I used to ride (horses and bikes) occasionally without a hard hat Sipu, but only when I was poodling around at a sedate pace.

    I agree with you really, accidents happen and one can be too bloody precious sometimes.

  5. Ah ha, you may be right but I poodle, which means messing about, and not taking it seriously.

    It may be a Sarf Oxfordshire. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Sipu, I bow of course to your bluer blood, but the recent pics of HM with grand-daughter suggest you are wrong. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. ricksrant :

    If your time is up it is up, helmet or no helmet.

    Interesting philosophical point. If he’d been helmetted, his time wouldn’t have been up so was he fated not to wear it?

    You should bow, Janus, not just to my blue blood, but my general superiority.

    โ€œItโ€™s a well known fact that the Queen doesnโ€™t wear a hat, sheโ€™s from the old school. She is in her 80s and she is still riding so I think she is a good advert for how riding keeps people fit.โ€.
