Back in the mid '90s, I ended up in the back of an ambulance on the way to the Royal Sussex with a friend who had crashed whilst riding with us. He'd not been wearing a helmet, and suffered a trauma to his head. That was on a road bike training ride.
He's never recovered.
I'm not risking going through that again, and with the increased risk off road, there's no way I will allow it.

No offence, but if you want to ride without one, then go ahead. But don't expect to join in on a ride I organise.

Here here Mike.

The helmet (smirk) argument is dated and ridiculous.


Yawn. Been some years since the pointless helmet threads. Going well off the topic of this thread.

Has it not always been a rule of officially organized retro rides that you must whear a helmet?
Something to do with liability ??
Mods?

Hi Mike,

I'd be interested in attending this ride if that's ok. I warn you I'm still a blob though, still I'll be quick downhill!

Have you got any details fleshed out yet on the route or itinerary?

Bad timing. I'll be in Wales doing the Brecon gap, and a couple of other bits.

Sad but....
