LotStreetWiz decided to discard his old bike helmets as each of them had been in a crash and had been banged on a hard surface. They still looked OK and they had StyrofoamTM backing; I was tempted to offer them to people without helmets who look as if they can’t afford them and who are running the risk of getting a ticket for not wearing one. Having a helmet is far less important than obeying the rules of the road and biking safely. But I dutifully threw them away. I can’t be responsible for letting someone use a helmet that might not protect them in a crash.
Then off we went to La Bicicletta on Saturday morning two weeks ago to buy a new helmet. I enjoyed the bike racer ambiance.
LotStreetWiz talked with a sales guy and tried on helmets.
They had to get the right adjustment.
Finally one was just right.
On the way out, I noticed one of those extravagant bike-race trophies.
UPDATE: I noticed that there were helmet marks after a four-hour workout. Maybe he should have bought the large size.
