Thought a big list of organisations that are opposed to compulsion would be
worth mentioning in my letter to MP. So far I've got:

British Medical Association http://www.bma.org/ap.nsf/Content/CyclingPU Cycle Touring Club
http://www.ctc.org.uk/resources/Campaigns/0305_CTChelmetpromo8brf.doc European Cyclists' Federation
http://www.ecf.com/publications/index.htm

Are there any other organisations out there that are against compulsion?

What about "Don't BHIT" as the name of the campaign?

I feel a t-shirt coming on.

I like the original. Someone should run this up on a batch of cycling jerseys, helmets or caps.

"The BMA does not consider that the wearing of cycle helmets by all pedal cyclists when on the
public highway should be made compulsory at present."

"The BMA strongly recommends that all cyclists, especially children, wear proper fitting helmets
which as a minimum should be certified to the EN 1078 standard, but preferably certified to the
Snell B95 standard. It is also important that helmets are replaced after an accident."

It would seem that the BMA and I speak as one.

I'd be surprised if Gonzalez can find a helmet big enough to fit his head...
