Helmet style

Nod to the NY Times, who published an article in yesterday’s Style Section on bike helmets as style statements.  While a part of me bristles at the mention of “cycling style,” the part of me that cares about people’s brains being protected in the event of a crash is pleased (bias completely acknowledged).  If it takes a fancy wood-grain, tweed, or hand-painted helmet, that’s cool with me.  And what’s more, who is photo number 2 in the media slideshow?  Why, it’s none other than Paul McNamara, former manager of On The Route Bikes, and the first member of the Chicago cycling community I met when I moved to Chicago 3 years ago.

There’s Paul, 3rd from the left

Thanks to the OTR twitter feed for the heads up.
