In honour of Bike Week and all of the helmet talk in this week's issue, we encourage you to use your melon by protecting it. In efforts to help you keep your brains at their absolute safest as you’re cruising the back roads, speeding to work or sweating your way up Duke Street, I Heart Bikes (Sands at Salter, 1507 Lower Water Street) has a colourful selection of Nutcase helmets, and the largest one in Atlantic Canada actually. Stop by its neon green shipping container to doll up and defend your noggin with one of the brand new, Gen3 model—it's light, well-ventilated and comes with a detachable visor for those sweltering sunny days. Pair that practicality with a magnetic buckle (no more chin pinching!) and choose a shade or pattern—say pink cheetah print— to suit your riding style and you’re ready for the road.
These puppies run for $74.95, but you can’t really put a price on your head, can you?
