Have you even read her blog Andrew? I think she knows what a lot of people think and she does not care one bit. Maybe you can take a leaf out of her book and harden up :)

One of the things she bangs on about is her hair not being suitable for helmets.

As far as I know she lost her case. She should build a bridge......one that leads to a hairdresser/shearer :idea: :)

Simply not the case, on both counts.

SMH wrote:But Ms Abbott says it's nothing to do with her exuberant hair. Her objections are based on her belief that wearing a helmet increases the risk of brain damage - and that forcing her to wear one is a breach of her civil liberties.


SMH wrote:Judge Roy Ellis happily admitted his own doubts about the laws.....

......''I frankly don't think there is anything advantageous and there may well be a disadvantage in situations to have a helmet - and it seems to me that it's one of those areas where it ought to be a matter of choice.''

He found Ms Abbott had ''an honestly held and not unreasonable belief as to the danger associated with the use of a helmet by cyclists'', and quashed her conviction, although he still found her offence proven.

Again, a somewhat offensive comment being pushed forward :roll:

Ok so she was not punished, that doesnt mean much and has nothing to do with her breaking the law because it suits her.

You can talk untill your blue in the face, I dont believe for one second that part of it is not about her "do".

If the cycle chic wannabes can take pot shots at lycra wearing "racers" then why cant they handle some of their own medicine? What about redheads? We call them ranga's and everyone has a chuckle, including most redheads :wink: I dont see what I wrote as being any different. It was a good natured dig at her permfro.

Dont be so bloody precious.

Please show me where I've said anything of this sort?

(Hint: quite often I ride a racer, wearing lycra too)

Of course, but I am! :P

Sorry to derail the thread but in my defense I was not talking about you at all mate, it was just a general whinge. Even though I like the site and support what he does, that fella at Copenhagenize is guilty of it quite a bit. I think the irony is lost on him or hes just a cheeky bugger :wink: One second he is comparing bikes to vacuum cleaners and the next second he is raving on about how awesome his cargo bikes are :roll: [again I agree they are awesome and I'd love a Bullitt but I'd like some of that cake he is eating as well :mrgreen: ]

Also, im the biggest cycle poser I know and proud of it :P Only difference is I dont discriminate, I'll pose in lycra or civ's 8)

Nasty nasty .... Can we please keep this thread positive ... Shouldn't be too hard should it?

Andrew


Really, if that's nasty, I must still be in kindergarten. Seems like you have a bug up the back passage about a lot of my posts. Maybe whack me on your ignore list.

Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:
