Do you have a fan cooled helmet....that's nifty!

Poor Turnip Evans has lost the tour. Yellow just didn't suit him. Now Mr Evans do butt me with your pointy helmet. OOh you could have someones eye out.

Oops, I read that on my pda, with icons and pictures turned off. So, instead of getting the icon I got the word "cheesy"...

Mr Evans you even hit a policeman, you are a low cyclist.

I've seen Turnipsocks Helmet too. His is more aerodynamic than my husbands. It helps if you want to go really fast, especially around the track.

When and where did you see Turnipsock's bike helmet?

You can't go on a head on a tandem as you are on the same bike.

Tandem racing doesn't seem to be as popular as it used to be.

I remember Blue Peter, the popular kids TV program, did a thing about it as it was a good sport for blind people (not on the steering end). They interviewed a blind person and they had their helmet on backwards and nobody thought to mention it to them.

Does that tandem look like it going round the track in the wrong direction or is it just me?

I think the person on the front has let one go as the person on the back is trying to hold her breath.

Anyway, having your helmet on back to front sounds really painful.
