Re all this mail about helmets. Let me tell you what we do in Australia.
Juniors must wear a helmet (Under 16) All others have a choice. The logic
seems to be that juniors need guidance and hopefully will continue to wear
helmet when they are out of junior status and most do. Also at least 50% of
older riders including me have come around from the old cowboy outlook.
It's likely that as time goes on most will wear a helmet.
If the camp is interested I would like to tell you a bit more about
Australian Endurance from time to time
