 I don't know about the no helmet rule thing, because Ian highlands picked that puddle splash pod a while ago.... and the rider had no helmet. On the other hand I know for a fact that they TRY to avoid no-helmet PODs, the truth of the matter is that some photos are just good, regardless of what the rider has on their head. I would finish by saying that if you choose to ride without a helmet it's just natural selection hard at work and you should have a chat with Mike Aitken, Stephen Murray, Tara Llanes, and countless others who are probably going to say, "ya, you should be doing anything you can to protect yourself!" Peace out, and safe ridingSmile

 A quote from Ian Himself on that photo

" if the rider has a snorkel the helmet rule can sometimes be forgiven..."

 youd think that if he wants to ride with no helmet its his choice and if he hurts his head he has to suffer the consiquences him self, not having a helmet shouldnt affect this being a POD,

 It's not his personal safety as the issue, its promoting safety to people who see it.

 If there is a rule for POD with no helmet, there should be a rule of no exception. As if they let it slip once or twice they seem to be not taking it seriously. Personally i think its a terrible rule for pink bike. I'm all for helmets, but i believe its personal preference and blah blah blah. But there is no point commenting on a photo that isn't POD yet saying 'no helmet no POD'. Appreciate the photography and the riding and leave your opinion to yourself until you're out at the park or trails and see someone riding without a helmet then, as complaining on here aint going to do squat

 if people dont wanna wear a helmet, thats their fault, i never used to wear one, now i wear it everywhere cuz i like to do shit on my bike while going places, i learned that having a helmet isnt stupid, its better than crashing and being brain dead,
