I know there’s a perpetual debate about and I would never dream of forcing anyone else to where one forcibly. However, today I was cycling home and I was passing a couple of pedestrians on a shared path on a bit where some of it had been blocked off. As I got into the narrowed lane, I noticed too late that there was a very heavy low hanging branch on which I banged my helmeted head quite hard (I mean loudly).


Luckily, the helmet took the blow and I was unharmed. So today’s lesson for me is that it’s not just there to protect me if I happen to fall off.

Forcing forcibly? Oh dear, I see it’s time to go to bed.

@mkwadee In The Netherlands people don't weat helmets while cycling, only the lycra cyclists do. Never thought of low hanging branches...
