Hats Off To The Danes
My good friend (and occasional riding partner) Carlo sent this video to me, and I just had to share.
It shows police in Denmark stopping cyclists who aren't wearing helmet, hugging them, and then giving them a free helmet.
A good friend of mine -- Brian Bourke, a fantastic music journalist and an avid cyclist -- was killed in the early 1990s after he was struck by a van while riding. He wasn't wearing a helmet, and it's rare that I don't think about him each time I put my own helmet on before a ride.
Hats off to the Danes.
