I came across a piece from last year on why this person loves living in Hamburg, Germany.
Here is #1:
"1. Put on your walking shoes and your cycling pants. Walking and biking are such a huge part of the culture here that you have a sort of daily built in exercise system. I love that Europe is set up so much better for transit and walking and cycling in general. I mean, sometimes I get a little annoyed by the endless number of cyclists that almost run me down on a daily basis, but hey, they’re out there biking, they’re doing it! I applaude you! But really….I know you’re sophisticated and European and all, but shouldn’t you be wearing a helmet? Just a suggestion."
Hamburg might not be the best cycling city in Germany, but what is this obsession from non-cycling Canadians to tell those who do ride to wear a helmet?
It sounds more like she, as a pedestrian should be wearing the helmet, since she believes she is in danger from cyclists.
