If you bicycle around the island, do you wear a bicycle helmet? If you hate helmets because of the way they look or feel, you might be inspired by the invisible bicycle helmet. It’s a collar that
inflates with helium gas to protect the wearer’s head at top and on the sides when motion sensors detect a new disturbance. Pretty cool! For details, see Invisible Bike Helmet Is Safest Bike Helmet at Treehugger.com.
Maybe one of these days when there’s a another stage race around Gabriola you’ll see (or rather: not see!) some of these invisible helmets in use.
