Sit up and take notice…Helmets down under…


“SYDNEY will never be a bicycle-friendly city until it develops a ”second cycling culture” which encourages relaxed European-style riding without the compulsory use of helmets, experts have warned”.

So says the Sydney Morning Herald

Mikael from Copenhaganize has an interesting comment on that article,

just because Australia is the other side of the world does not mean that opinions are poles apart.

The ‘2nd cycle culture’ has been born; it just needs little nurturing…

We keep sit up and beg cycles here at the dairy, come and have a slow look around.
