I've 'touched-down' in Sydney; and not a moment too soon...I'm just in time for a 'touch of art'!!
FUNTIMES!! - always a pleasure following Saskia around, and lovely to meet Gilbert of ARTcycle fame - so make sure you check for a gallery near you - they're 'popping-up' all over the place!!!
However notwithstanding the beauty & serenity that is evident across Sydney as a result, arriving back in 'Helmet-law land' has reminded me yet again that mandatory standards for bicycle helmets make no sense - in part due to two elements:
1st element - a cyclist must exhibit compliance by wearing a helmet
2nd element - a helmet must exhibit compliance by complying with the standard
...therefore anyone riding a bicycle ought to be stopped in order for their helmet to be inspected - after all just because you're wearing a helmet doesn't automatically make you compliant & law abiding...
...imagine - there could be dozens of law-breakers out there!!!
'Checkpoint Helmet' would be just the ticket; literally!!!
