R4 + Cycle Helmets

edited August 2010 in Commuting chat
Enjoyable prog called More Or Less [looks at stats & numbers, & how they can be interpreted differently] returns to R4 on Friday lunchtime [today] with a Sunday night rpt prob.

The trail for it yesterday promised a look at cycle helmet wearing, in relation to Boris's bike hire scheme not including them. It'll be interesting to see what stance they take on it.

Go and dig up one of the 3½ thousand threads that already exist re helmets if you want to continue the helmet debate, but it's sounds like it's worth a listen.

    Interestingly I read this article just yesterday:

    There is a similar piece expanded to cover a proposed new law for Northern Ireland, in Cycling Weekly this week.

    Whatever the ins & outs, compulsion always seems to come out as the worst option. Anyway, 1:30 today, on the wireless.

    Does yours have a crystal and is it made of bakelite? Do we need to tune it to the "light programme"?

    Maybe I'll tune in later to listen to the "hit parade"! Whilst enjoying spam for my tea.
