Em well its for me and I have rather large head. When my first holy communion I had to get a brides head dress cause none off the wee flower girl ones fitted my massive nogan!

No luck I'm afraid my spare one is sized S/M, and it's more of a small than a medium (thats why it's my spare now). I will keep you in mind if I come across any.

there isn't one.

i personally never wear a helmet, it takes away the joy for me, the essential spirit of cycling is to feel free. i need to feel the wind in my hair man Cool . but i understand it is a controversial subject.

there is much debate in the cycling community regarding this. there are the obvious benefits of wearing one but some argue that motorists are less careful towards cyclists if they are wearing helmets. there is also debate as to the actual protective benefits of helmets.

personal choice rules here. but you certainly won't be braking the law by riding without one. but you will be if you ride on pavements! (but don't let that stop you)

it's the slowing down quickly that kills you or gives u brain damage and a cycle helmet won't stop that however, it will help you in a lot of other ways and when you consider how dangerous a fall from only about a meter can be you can see theres definetly a benefit. You need to make sure it doesn't restrict your field of vision though.

Funnily enough i'm going to buy one tomorrow, i've cycled without one for ages but i think it's a good idea in this slippy weather

There is no law regarding wearing a helmet. I wear mine all the time now, but have only started doing so for about the last 2 and a half years. I don't feel any safer wearing one as I think your bike handling skills are what keep you safe and upright.

A helmet is only of any use if it fits correctly and is worn properly, and should be replaced if you do have an accident or drop it.

The most important thing is to enjoy your cycling, and it helps to know that you are doing yourself and the planet a bit of good at the same time
