|... found this pic in the latest issue of "Cycle Sports" (DEC 01) magazine.
I don't care how much it weighs, or if it makes me faster, or some will think I'm a poser or a fred... I gotta have one... cuz...
Of note, especially with recent posts about cycling's tentative return to Afghanistan (http://www.velonews.com/news/fea/1625.0.html), and the gentleman pictured in the background (I assume he is a race official in Malaysia where the photo seems to have been taken... and forgive my ignorance on the finer points of which peoples and/or religions wear this garb) is the ability of cycling to bridge cultural gaps... I hope the time dawns soon when cycling can continue to aid in the healing process worldwide.
Oh, and I gotta have this helmet... who knows the story, what's the scoop, who makes 'em, where do I sign up???
I don't care if I have no peripheral vision, or it's too hot, or it fogs up, or it...
Remain In Light.

|Not much cultral gap bridging going on between starving third world peoples and elite cyclists - no matter what you wear or think. You can't begin to imagine what a day in their life is like - travelling to third world hell-holes can fix that. Start with Manilla or anywhere in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, etc. Just pick some place that has strife, armed conflict, corruption, prostitution, graft and a healthy dose of poverty You need to get out more often and stop breathing your own fumes. We're just a bunch of intruders in their world - our concept of cycling is a leisure activity pursued by the rich to keep from getting too fat. |
Since Xmass is coming....
I want a set of military helmet mounted night vision goggles. Could you imagine how cool that would be? Poaching verbotten single track while Ranger Rick runs around with a flash light as you toss rocks near him....heh, heh, heh. I make no claims that this will bring understanding between Mr. Ranger and myself - other than a good case of the giggles.
