Wicked Boston

blue Bern bike helmetMusing about bikes in Boston this evening we had a brainstorm. What if you used a Bern helmet to approximate the iconic ballcap?

Boston B RedSoxCould anything be more Boston than that?

You'd need the RedSox on the back of the helmet, and a big red B for Boston on the front.


Happy Opening Day!

what a cool idea. i'd wear one though i wouldn't be caught dead in a real baseball hat...

Anonymous, my husband is the same way. He wants a helmet like this, and he doesn't own a baseball cap. We actually brainstormed this thinking of alternative helmets and I suggested a batter's helmet. We think this will be safer.

Chiara, I want pics! What will you put on yours?

la-piernanegra - you're better at that than I am!
:)

What a cute idea!

It does look a lot like a batter's helmet- you could smear pine tar all over it if you wanted "authenticity"

Sad that they've already decided to delay the game because of the threat of rain :(

Carice,
Well, the weather sure made good on that threat! It's POURING now. Ugh.

I'm inclined to think that would get a smile - and respect - from a lot of motorists.
