Cyclists, do you ever accidentally leave your bike helmet on?
It seems I do. Last night at the Leith Library Christmas party I got chatting to the guys from the Housing Office (we share an office in the library). They told me that when I started on one occasion I sat my desk for an hour and a half with my bike helmet on. How embarrassing.
