December 19th: Stylish Safety

This gift found a home with a stylish cyclist. Check out the Decemberfest calendar for today's gift!


Whether to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle is always a dilemma: On the one hand, it looks ridiculous, but, on the other hand, it could save your life. I always wear one, but it's an easy decision for me because I look ridiculous even before I put the helmet on. For everyone who is trying to maintain a spiffy appearance while riding a bicycle, today's Decemberfest gift is going to be a great treat.


A mind is a wonderful thing to cover with a helmet.

vivarad helmet

Gary Meuser runs the Jimdo site vivarad, where he sells top-notch Danish bicycles that are expertly built with excellent parts. In addition to a series of beautiful, quality bicycles — several of which I'm in love with — Gary also sells bike accessories on vivarad. For Decemberfest, he's offering a retro brown and cream bicycle helmet. 


The helmet is made out of fiberglass, which is lightweight (and comfortable to wear) but extremely strong, which means that it will absorb the impact if you hit your head. It's also got a classy leather stripe down the middle that makes the helmet look hip while it's protecting your head. I think I'm going to trade in my old metallic blue helmet for one of these masterpieces.


If you'd like to enter to win a helmet from vivarad, just leave a comment below or retweet our daily Decemberfest tweet. And please make sure that you ride safely out there — a million things can go wrong and a lot of people would hate to see you hurt. 

This post is for my best friend Aidan Stone, who was in a cycling accident. We're thinking about you, Aidan.

    WOW! Jimdo users are the coolest crafters I have seen yet!

    Is there some way to do searches within Jimdo users only? I'd love to be able to see who makes items as I need them....
