I'm amazed your post hasn't attracted the 'I'll wear what I want' comments....... So many people seem to think that as long as they are riding within their 'limits' then nothing can go wrong.  'It's far too warm to wear protective kit' and the like.... Vulcanriders comment about the cyclist just goes to show that we are vunerable.....

and I know how much it hurts coming off a push bike, albeit I wasn't wearing lycra but a skirt. I was cycling to school, I skidded on some lose gravel on a bend, went down and the tarmac took the skin off the top of my knee, I still have the scar, 20 + years on. :blink:

Gear

Very quick tot up, and I've got over £2,500 worth of kit (excluding helmets as they are compulsory).

I got rid of loads before moving here, probably another £1,000 worth.

I believe in safety gear - I also believe in freedom of choice.:wink:

I Believe

I can fly................. But..........We'll soon see........ As for the protection Argument......... When it's way too Hot....I don't ride.......... and when it's cold I wrap up as much as Poss........ In Between I tend to wear whatever is the most Comfortable.............. Most of the time it will include some sort of Protection/armour.....but there are occasions when T Shirt and shorts.........Beckon....... I have friends in foreign Countries and Friends who don't ride but visit foreign Countries ...who wear nothing but Flip Flops and Tees n Shorts......... If you fall off every time you ride then in my book......... you shouldn't really Ride...... If you have spent 40 years riding and never fallen off then the temptation is to skimp on the Protection occasionally............ You Know the Consequences either way.
