    got to papago park, unloaded everything and realized that i had NO helmet! there's a first time for everything, i guess. i debated if to ride, but opted to do so, but skip going to the jumps area to catch 6 to 8 feet of air. instead i rode around the golf course and the small butte taking extra care and shooting some pics of:

    downtown tempe
    downtown phoenix
    piestawa peak
    and my dusty fork

    yawn...i really wanted to jump...

    well, a couple of good things/observations:

    it felt GREAT not having a helmet on and feeling the cool breeze.
    and secondly:

    I don't have to worry about helmet hair

    I guess if your going to forget your helmet. The loop around papago golf course is a good place to do so.

    I NEVER wore a helmet ripping around and jumping everything in sight on my BMX bike as a kid - funny how things change! I guess when I grew up kids had more respect for speed and danger. Now - always a helmet!

    OMGosh. No helmet? You are surely going to hell.

    I'll admit...yes helmet Nazis...I'm openly admitting...sometimes I ride around my neighborhood...helmetless!

    The breeze in the hair does feel good...and hell, it's probably good to get in a few minutes every now and then -helmetless- to feel that same thing you did as a kid.

    But I wear a helmet 100% of the time now. No exceptions.

    10 second rule.

    I crash in 10 seconds if I ride without helmet. Dumb Irish luck. If I cover all bases and noggin... I get away with just about anything scary! Tempt fate or God... well you guess the outcome. Kudos...the irishbikeguy.

    is right, missy.
    that was not bedhead hair but the results of the breeze gently caressing my goldie locks.

    today i was a good girl; i remembered to bring my helmet to ride DC from 7 to 8:30am. it was sure gittin hot. darn muggy summers...
