Copenhagen cool

Impossibly glamorous astride a bicycle; Danish women make peddling down to the shops sexy.

 Copenhagen, June 2009

What a cunning ploy to legislate against compulsory helmets and emphasise style over sport/recreation.  We have a way to go, but Frocksonbikes (albeit with helmet hair), is a wonderful start.

Now, if we could just sort the problem we're having with some New Zealand motorists and their reluctance to share the roads...

Perhaps we need more of the above.  I suspect even the most impatient drivers might slow to the visual pleasure of a beautiful dress gliding by on a bicycle.

In the meantime, I shall continue my quest for the least unflattering helmet; an oxymoron if ever there was one.
