feel good . do good . look good --- cycling
did you ever get to the bottom of the equestrian vs bike helmet issue?
Anonymous,As far as I'm concerned, there is no issue. I know that some people are concerned that equestrian helmets got too far down the back of one's head in a region where a horse might putatively kick, and that the velvet on some models might provide too much friction (should a person be sliding across pavement primarily on the helmet). I reject both these issues as being minor compared to the the helmet question in general: whether to wear one and if so, how to make it easy, comfortable, and pleasant for the person doing so. If wearing an equestrian helmet accomplishes that I support it 100%.
I love to see pedestrians and cyclists interacting positively. We're all on the same team. I try to smile at as many pedestrians as possible, after stopping for them at the crosswalk, even if I could technically zip by without physically harming them.
