Here are the various ways you can bash your head in Zurich and its surroundings:
…Can I write kick-boarding if I know a guy who owns an electric one that hits 30km an hour?
I myself climb, cycle round the city and ski. So I’m in the helmet market three times over. I should add that I’m also one of those nutters who insists on tackling Zurich’s deathtrap of a cycling system in all weather conditions. Ice ain’t nothing but frozen water, right?
Well, that kind of thinking saw me collide with the pavement not too long ago. I thought I was developing a dramatic black eye when I remembered that my boyfriend had quite vigorously poked me in the eye whilst dancing just prior to my crash. Still, it was just the wake up call I needed.
Rather than wade through mountains of outdoor gear I wasn’t shopping for, I headed straight for the no-nonsense helmets only shop I had cycled past on a near-daily basis.
I now have an olive green shell for my fragile little nut and customisable inner padding for when I wear a little beanie (imagine the epic hat hair!) and when not. I was fitted properly and got to shake my head like a lunatic to test it out.
Stay safe, peeps!
