Huge Helmet Calls for Its Tribute – Bike Snob NYC


The large information within the biking world is after all that movie star food-cooking individual Gordon Ramsay has been concerned in a biking “accident:”

And has served up the compulsory “my helmet saved my life” assertion:

Seasoned with a splash of father’s day guilt:

To this point I’ve not seen any particulars relating to the crash itself, so it’s unimaginable to say whether or not there are some other components that will have contributed to it whatever the model of hat he could or could not have been sporting on the time. Was there a automobile concerned? Did he try and journey on an unpaved floor with out utilizing a correct gravel bike? Was he distracted by his cellphone, or by persistent nipple irritation as a result of his obvious lack of a base layer?

We could by no means know. Nonetheless, the presence of gravel within the photograph does increase some suspicion:

Regardless, that is probably the most intense British cycling-themed guilt journey to which we’ve been subjected since Richard Branson admonished us all to put on physique armor:

Regardless that the crash was attributable to his undiagnosed lack of thumb mastery:

Photographic proof does recommend he has identified grasp sporting gear since not less than 2005:

Although apparently he by no means realized to use the method to the bicycle.

Two years later he crashed once more:

And eventually acquired with this system:

To not sound like a conspiracy theorist, however that second crash has Huge Helmet throughout it.

So let’s assessment:

  • Gordon Ramsay: Plastic racing bike, crash
  • Richard Branson: Plastic racing bike, crash
  • Simon Cowell: Overpowered motorized bike, crash

Helmets caveats not withstanding, maybe all of those gents ought to think about extra age- and lifestyle-appropriate bicycles. For instance, they could think about switching to bikes with…oh, I dunno, tall quill stems to get the handlebars up a bit and actually lengthy wheelbases for enhanced stability? There gotta be someone who sells a motorcycle like that, proper?

In the event you can consider anyone let me know and I’ll go it alongside.
