“He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle..."

“He neither drank, smoked, nor rode a bicycle. Living frugally, saving his money, he died early, surrounded by greedy relatives. It was a great lesson to me.” - John Barrymore

You may recall that I managed to successfully track down (miracle of miracles) a bicycle helmet that I'm actually comfortable wearing out in public...as opposed to the majority of helmets which are so ugly that only the potential of brain damage induces you to wear one.

Which means it was (naturally) about time for me to stumble across a bicycle bonnet, i.e. a natty little hat to disguise your ugly helmet and add an element of safety thanks to some reflective embellishment...something which I always wondered why nobody actually made.

    I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone did. The same phenom was present in the horseback riding hard hat realm. Finally, someone got into business making helmet covers, and things improved drastically for all of us.

    That sounds dramatic. It wasn't all that dramatic, but still, it was nice to have options. :P
