There are certain days every year that are well celebrated by the masses. Christmas, New Year’s and Independence day come to mind (and many religions/countries have variants of those major ones). Then there are those holidays that are still well known, but perhaps not as widely celebrated – i.e. – Winter Solstice. And finally – there are those holidays that only certain groups of people could appreciate. And that is where this particular one comes into action.
Tomorrow – April 12th – is “Shower with your helmet day” – per the March 2008 Bicycling Magazine (page 32 for those curious). As such, tomorrow after your long ride you need to retain the helmet and get into the shower with it on. (And to be clear here guys, we’re talking cycling helmet – keep your mind out of the gutters…unless you have a friend of course). And if you don’t have a long ride tomorrow, then just wear it after your long run. If you don’t have either of those tomorrow – then we needs to have a wee little discussion about training.
Think about it – you take that helmet everywhere with you on your bike. Protecting your occasionally less than smart noggin whether or not it wants to. Did anyone ask your helmet how it feels during a century ride with the blazing sun in the middle of the summer? Nope. How would you feel if someone just strapped you to their car racks and bumbled all over high heaven with you up there as ‘protection’. See…makes you appreciate it now – doesn’t it?
So, go show it some love and clean it off. But again…don’t be showing it too much love. You know…like a certain Steve would. Cause that could lead to an awkward moment. And perhaps even some itsy-bitsy relationship problemo’s.
I swim, bike and run. Then, I come here and write about my adventures. It’s as simple as that. Most of the time. If you’re new around these parts, here’s the long version of my story.

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products.
