Spoke and mir­rors

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – I re­ally en­joyed Ciara O’Brien’s ar­ti­cle on cy­cling safely and es­pe­cially read­ing about the in­no­va­tive Hovd­ing hel­met com­plete with airbag (Tech­nol­ogy, Novem­ber 8th). What a clever idea. How­ever, she did not men­tion a rear-view mir­ror, one very in­ex­pen­sive but es­sen­tial piece of equip­ment, avail­able in bi­cy­cle shops for about ¤10. It is eas­ily at­tached to the han­dle bars and means you are aware of traf­fic be­hind you at all times. – Yours, etc,

CLARE BAILY, Black­rock, Cork.
